West Bengal: Reacting to Monday’s rape incident that happened in Salt Lake, the chairperson of the West Bengal Women’s Commission, Sunanda Mukherjee on Tuesday said that reason for the increase in rapes are the advertisements about enhancing sex power.

She pointed out that the television ads about Viagra, a medicine meant for boosting the sex and sexuality, are the root cause of increasing rapes. She said men lose control and fall for these things after watching such ads.

“Rapes happen due to Viagra ads. They corrupt the minds due to which men lose control and do such things,” Sunanda Mukherjee said.

On Monday, a girl was raped in a moving car by three men in Salt Lake. The accused Subhendu Nag, Sourav Dey and Arnab Bera have been arrested by the Kolkata Police.
