Mulayam Singh defends rapists, says boys make mistakes sometimes
Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav on Thursday said it was wrong to give capital punishment to rapists involved in the gang rape of two persons in Mumbai in August and September of last year, adding that boys make mistakes at times.
Speaking at a rally here, Yadav questioned the need for a court of the land to hand down capital punishment to the three men involved in the two crimes.
"We will bring changes in the law when we come to power," Yadav said.
