E P Jayarajan irked by Rishi Raj Singh’s '14 second’ remark
Thiruvanananthapuram: Sports Minister E P Jayarajan on Monday termed Excise Commissioner Rishi Raj Singh’s ’14-second’ remark as “annoying”.
He said that the Commissioner’s statement will be brought to the notice of the Excise Minister.
Speaking at an event in Kochi on Sunday, Rishi Raj Singh had said that if a woman files complaint against a man for staring at her even for about 14 seconds, the police can take action.
Urging women to come forward to make good use of the protection offered by the country’s law, he asked them to keep small knives or pepper sprays with them to escape molestation bids.
