Congress MLA M. Vincent arrested for rape in Kerala; Huge embarrassment for Congress

We hear news in media where Congress leaders hit out at PM Modi saying women are not safe under PM Modi and women safety measures are not focused on.

While Congress was busy accusing Modi for each and every petty issue as they are unable to find a major scam, a MLA from Kerala, M Vincent has been arrested in Kerala today.

He was charged with sexual harassment and stalking of a 51-year-old woman who attempted suicide earlier this week.

M Vincent was a first-time legislator and the police arrived at his hostel in Thiruvananthapuram at 12:30 PM. The police questioned him for nearly two hours and was finally arrested for further interrogation.

The complaint was filed by the husband of the woman with the local police station near Thiruvananthapuram who said that Congress MLA Vincent was threatening and harassing his wife over phone.

The police team also met Kollam Superintendent of Police S Ajeetha Begum, who will head the probe team. M Vincent has moved for anticipatory bail from a court in Thiruvananthapuram.

But when asked about the arrest, Vincent said that he is a “victim of political conspiracy”. This line was used by several Congressmen when caught by police.

This barbarism of the Congress MLA came to limelight when the woman who was the victim of his harassment attempted suicide by consuming excessive dose of sleeping pills on July 19, 2017. Later the police noted the statement of the woman.

The woman told the media on July 22, 2017 that she has been facing severe mental harassment from the legislator and he has misbehaved with her on two different occasions.

This act of disrespecting a woman was hugely condemned by many and several youths came on the streets protesting this incident.

Now, what is the say of Congress leaders on this? Will they stage a protest in “Jantar Mantar”? Do they really care for women safety? Will Rahul Gandhi speak up on this in the parliament session instead of disrupting the session?
