A day after a large number of women were allegedly molested by mobs on MG Road and Brigade Road in the heart of Bengaluru while ringing in the New Year, Karnataka home minister G Parameshwara responded by saying "these kinds of things do happen".
Police has also said women are often molested during such celebrations and no case had been registered as complainants hadn't come forward.
The statement by the minister has caused an outcry by a large number of people, some asking him to resign.
