Mahoba (UP): Taking suo motu congnizance of his recent remarks on rape, a local court has summoned Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on September 16.

Civil judge (junior division) of Kulpahad Tehsil Ankit Goel took congizance of Yadav's statement on rape on August 18 in Lucknow, where he had said while one man commits rape, four are named to "settle scores" and that rape by four persons was not "practical".

The SP supremo had said there were instances where only one person committed rape but the victim named four people merely to "settle scores".

The summons have been issued under sections 3 and 4 of Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act, 1956 and under IPC sections 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 505 (statements conducing to public mischief), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), 116 (abetment of offence punishable with imprisonment).
