Congress rakes up old rape charge

In a rebuttal to the BJP’s attack on the government for failure to check the growing incidents of rape in the city, the Congress on Tuesday raked up a 17-year-old allegation against BJP chief ministerial candidate Harsh Vardhan about the rape of a woman who used to work at his residence.

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and her Cabinet colleagues Haroon Yusuf and Raj Kumar Chauhan raised the issue at a press conference at her residence here.
