Jharkhand CM’s brother in soup over ‘underwear’ remark

Updated: September 9, 2022 4:10 pm

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren’s younger brother has courted controversy by claiming that he was not in his constituency Dumka where the death of two girls has caught the attention of the nation, as he was in Delhi to buy innerwear. Reacting to the legislator’s alleged statement, BJP’s Godda MP Nishikant Dubey said the entire Soren family will be chased out of Jharkhand as its members have become insensitive. BJP MLA Bhanu Pratap Shahi also condemned the Dumka legislator’s remark saying, “When a tribal daughter and sister of Dumka were murdered, the local MLA, Basant Soren Ji, the beloved brother of Chief Minister Hemant Soren, was busy in Delhi buying undergarments instead of meeting those families.” A 14-year-old girl was found hanging from a tree last week. She was allegedly sexually exploited by a man on the pretext of marriage. Her mother alleged she was raped and killed. On August 23, a 16-year-old girl was set on fire by a man “whose “whose advances she had spurned”. The girl succumbed to her injuries five days later.
