AHMEDABAD: A two-member team of Congress Parliamentary Women’s Empowerment Committee sent by the party president, Sonia Gandhi, visited the sex scandal-rocked primary teachers’ training college in Patan in north Gujarat and demanded the resignation of the Chief Minister, Narendra Modi.

The team members, Prabha Thakur and Krishna Tirth, both members of the Rajya Sabha, also demanded a CBI inquiry into the sensational scandal of gang raping of a scheduled caste student by six teachers of the same college.

Talking to media persons, Ms Thakur and Ms Tirth said talking to the family members of the rape victim and other girl students of the college, who also complained of sexual harassment by some male teachers of the college, had clearly established the State government’s total failure in giving necessary protection to the girls in the college.
