Senior Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury made remarks when she was asked about Bulandshahr gang-rape case.

In what may give the opposition parties fresh ammunition to target the grand old party in the run up to the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, Congress senior leader Renuka Chowdhury on Tuesday sparked a controversy with her 'rape to chalte hi rehte hain' (rape is common) remark and said that one would not pat those in power because of delayed police action.

Responding to a question by ANI on the Bulandshahr gang-rape case in which the Uttar Pradesh Police have arrested three accused, Chowdhury, said, "Be it the police investigation or something else, this has taken place after a long time. Now, we will have to see the future course of action because we are fed up of the situation where we hear someone or the other talking on rape everyday when we wake up.
"Rape to chalte hi rehte hai (rape is common) and if they arrest someone after 10-20 days and think that we will pat their back then this won't happen."

The UP Police late on Monday night confirmed to have arrested the kingpin and two others of the gang suspected to be involved in the Bulandshahr gang-rape of a woman and her teenage daughter.

Meanwhile, the Uttar Pradesh Government has told the Allahabad High Court that it was ready to order a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe in the Bulandshahr gang rape case if the court desired so.

The government counsel told a Lucknow bench on Monday that it had no hesitation in handing over the probe to the central agency.

The counsel said Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav has already said that he was ready for a CBI probe if the victim family demanded so.

The bench deferred the hearing till August 22, asking the parties to file an affidavit regarding the development on another petition on the same issue in Allahabad.

Taking suo motu cognisance of the matter, the Allahabad High Court had decided to hear the matter.
