The Supreme Court today rejected the Apology tendered by Samajwadi Party’s (SP) Azam Khan – for calling a gang-rape incident “a political conspiracy,”

The Apex court felt that it “was not an unconditional apology”.

SP Leader had infamously said that the Bulandshahr Gang-rape in July was nothing but a Political conspiracy to malign Uttar Pradesh’s SP governmen.

He thereafter said he would submit a fresh affidavit using the word “remorse” as demanded by the top court.

The court has now scheduled the next date of hearing for December 15.

Supreme Court bench of Justices Dipak Misra and Amitava Roy stressed in the last hearing that the dignity of women is “uncompromisable.”

Uttar Pradesh government was directed to ensure that the minor survivor of the gang-rape in question is admitted in a Central School of her father’s choice.

SC quoted the saying – “Words once spoken cannot be recalled.”

SP leade Khan also offered to pay for the Bulandshahr Rape survivor’s education until she graduated but she turned down that offer.
