Deposed finance minister Raghavji’s domestic help, who had accused Raghavji of sodomy at Habibganj police station on Friday and had gone missing since, surfaced at the official residence of leader of Opposition in the state assembly Ajay Singh at 74 bungalows on Sunday morning and narrated to the media his sordid tale of how his pursuit of a respectful life landed him in a situation where he was forced to think of suicide as Raghavji and his two close aides sexually exploited him for three-and-a half years.


Accompanied by former Congress MLA from his region Pan Bai, his elder brother and uncle, Rajkumar arrived at the residence of Ajay Singh and gave him an application seeking his help in getting an FIR registered against Raghavji.

Later, addressing media Rajkumar narrated how he had gone to Raghavji’s residence in 2010 in pursuit of a permanent job and Raghavji’s aide Sher Singh had introduced him to Raghavji, who got him a job of assistant accountant with M/s Som Industries Pvt Ltd and how Raghavji gradually started having sex with him.

“I couldn’t believe that someone holding such a respected post in the government could stoop so low. I respected him like my father but he would ask me to massage his private parts and also force himself upon me,” he said.

“Sher Singh Chauhan and his brother- in- law Suresh Singh also had unnatural sex with me. In fact, Sher Singh is the man who ensnared smart boys for the minister. The minister would do it with women also. I was also used to be asked to bring women for him,” said the victim.

He admitted that BJP leader Shivshankar Pateriya gave him the idea of filming Raghavji’s sexual act with him and he along with Ghanshyam shot the pictures and made the CD.

He said Ghanshyam was with him and would stand witness in the case. On his father and one of the brothers, stating to the police that his allegation was false and he had made similar charges against a retired patwari and a sadhu he said that they were threatened and allured into saying such rubbish.

He pleaded that the toughest penalty should be ensured to Raghavji for sexually exploiting him and more poor men and women like him.
