Pune, Aug 28 IBNS | 12 months ago

In the wake of the recent Mumbai gangrape case, Bollywood actress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Hema Malini on Wednesday advised women not to go anywhere alone.


"Terrible things are happening. Women should be careful...don't take it so easy and go anywhere you want...anything can happen," Malini said at a function here.

Drawing an analogy, she said, "Krishna would always come to protect Draupadi. We are not so spiritually-evolved that God will come and protect us."

A photojournalist was gangraped when she entered Shakti Mill in Mumbai on Thursday last as the assailants held back her colleague by tying him up.

All the five accused have been arrested.
