BJP MP Gautam Gambhir on Friday termed the incident of two women being paraded naked in Manipur “extremely shameful” and said he feels ashamed to call himself an Indian.

The cricketer-turned-BJP MP from East Delhi told reporters on the sidelines of an event that Manipur-like incidents are not a common occurrence and it is the duty of the state’s chief minister to not let these happen.

“It is extremely shameful. I feel ashamed to call myself an Indian because the issue is not only limited to Manipur. It has lowered the head of the entire country, so it should not be politicised,” Mr Gambhir said.
