I didn’t rape the girl: Cong MLA

While talking to a news channel, Congress MLA Hemant Katare raised several issues against the police and on FIR registered against him on girl’s complaint.  He said, “From jail, after the arrest of eight day, the girl wrote letter to the police stating that she was raped, but she did not mention the date, day and time of incident. I think that if a girl is raped she should remember the black date, day and time of the incident. Surprisingly, the police registered the case without any cross verification.”

He added that he has evidences of his innocence and will place before court. He denied having physical relationship with the girl and that Vikramjeet had contacted him from the girl side. “When I came to know that Vikramjeet is searching for me, I asked two Congress corporators to check why Vikramjeet is searching for,” he said.
