Kolkata, March 1 (IANS) West Bengal Governor M.K. Narayanan Thursday asked the media not to sensationalise rape cases and stressed it was everybody’s duty to protect the women and children of the state.
Stating that West Bengal used to be one of the safest places in the past, the governor said: “Now the rapes are not being committed by outsiders. They are being committed by those in the state. It is the duty of all of us to protect our women and children.”
He said the administration was taking all possible steps to prevent any recurrence of such incidents.
“We should also ensure rapists are caught and police action is taken against them,” he said on the sidelines of a programme here.
Recently a series of rape cases, including those involving an Anglo-Indian woman in the upscale Park street, a railway commuter in Katwa of Burdwan district, and a deaf and mute patient in a government hospital in Bankura district, have come to the light.
