Meanwhile, President of Jaipur Congress Committee and former MLA Pratap Singh Khachariyawas visited the victim at the hospital and held the BJP government responsible for the incident.
“This is shameful that the government is allowing law and order situation to deteriorate. Police is doing nothing to control crime,” he said.

“The incident occurred on the premises of SMS hospital where a police chowki is present. Despite that the incident occurred,” he said.
Targeting the home minister, Pilot said the minister claimed that crime rate has come down but cases of rape and atrocities against women are on the rise.
“BJP government has completely failed in controlling crime,” he said.
