Raising the issue during Zero Hour in Rajya Sabha, Selja said there is "jungle raj" in Haryana and the government has been a "mute spectator" to the large-scale violence during the agitation in the state.

On the reported charges of rape and molestation by Jat quota agitators near Murthal town, Selja said the state government's enquiry team cannot be trusted and demanded that the High Court should inquire into it. "We demand a judicial inquiry."

Haryana government has set up a three-member team of women police officers to look into the alleged incidents of rape and molestation of several women by Jat protesters.

Pramod Tiwari of the Congress also demanded a fair probe into the rape and molestation allegations. TK Rangarajan of the CPI(M) condemned the lodging of a sedition case against party General Secretary Sitaram Yechury, CPI leader D Raja and other political leaders in Hyderabad.

An FIR has been registered against Yechury, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, party leaders Anand Sharma and Ajay Maken, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Raja, JD(U)'s KC Tyagi, JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar and Umar Khalid on the order of a Hyderabad court based on a complaint filed by lawyer Janardhan Goud.
