The woman who has accused Union minister Nihalchand and 16 others of sexually exploiting her in 2011 wants to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to apprise him of “facts” and to appeal for a CBI probe in the case.
Talking to media persons in Sriganganagar on Tuesday, she demanded that she and her family be provided proper security as they were receiving constant threats from people closed to the accused.
The woman, a resident of Haryana who was married to one Om Prakash Godara of Hanumangarh in Rajasthan, asked for an appointment from the Prime Minister so that she can tell him “the truth about the case”. She also appealed to Modi to dispense justice to her and remove Nihalchand from his cabinet.
“I filed the case during the Congress rule but the Congress did not provide me justice. Now I hope the BJP government will do justice to me,” she said, while demanding an inquiry by the CBI or any other independent agency to unearth the truth.
Police personnel and the men of Nihalchand, she alleged, were threatening those who were protecting her. “I am scared and demand superintendents of police of Sirsa (Haryana) and Jaipur to provide me security.”
She alleged that Nihalchand, the Ganganagar MP, was main culprit in the rape case and, therefore, action should be taken against him. “I will fight for justice and even knock the door of the Supreme Court. If the situation requires, I will sit on hunger strike,” she asserted.
Hetram Beniwal, former CPI (M) MLA who was also present at the press conference, said that the victim’s husband was a zila parishad director and that Nihalchand was involved in his election campaign.
