Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member of parliament Hema Malini today said the number of crimes reported against minors and women may be rising due to the recent publicity it has gathered.
Hema Malini, who is also an actress and a Bharatyanatyam dancer, said such crimes may have been common earlier too.
“Such cases are being given more publicity these days. So, it may have been happening earlier too, but wasn’t known. The government will definitely take more precaution and will come out with a solution,” Hema Malini said.
“Such incidents should not have happened; it is also showing our country in a bad light,” she remarked.
