"Hamare yaha ek bhi behen beti ki taraf agar koi ungli uthayega to uski ungli kaat di jaayegi, aisa hum prabhand karenge (If anyone dares to point fingers at our women.their fingers will be chopped off. We will make arrangements regarding this)," Khattar said during the launch of Ek aur Sudhar project here.
After receiving criticism over his statement, Khattar later clarified stating that he didn't mean for any barbarian rule towards anyone.
"Dekhiye kehne ki bhav ye hai ki sirf dandit karenge. Aisa koi barbarian rule hamara nahi hai(The intention of the statement was not a barbarian rule but to punish the accused/culprits)," Khattar told media here.
Khattar on Thursday said that if the accused is acquitted of all charges then that person can avail the benefits.
