Speaking to sabrangindia, Richa Singh said that unprintable and very serious threats including rape were made to her . While the police acted and arrested the accused , there seems to be political pressure now following which a cross FIR has also been lodged against Richa. Unfazed, she said " if someone like me, in public life can get rape threats and end up with an FIR, imagine what an ordinary girl in UP has to go through "
 
The incident only highlights the circumstances under which women politicians have to function, especially if they are vocal against the present regime.
