Press Trust Of India  |  Mumbai 

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief has blamed "Bihari" migrants for the recent case of gangrape of a girl in New Delhi.

"All are talking about the Delhi gangrape, but nobody is asking from where these men came. No one is asking who did this. So many cases are slapped against me (for speaking against Biharis) but no one is talking about the fact that all these rapists are from Bihar," he said, addressing a public function in suburban Goregaon last night.

"The system has collapsed," Raj said.

The gangrape of a 23-year-old paramedical student in the national capital has led to thousands of protesters taking to the streets demanding stricter anti-rape laws. A Delhi court, yesterday, took cognisance of the charge sheet filed by the and summoned the five accused named in it on January 7. The case of the minor accused in the crime will also be heard before a Juvenile Justice Board.
