After high drama throughout the day, police registered a case against former minister Raghavji for unnatural sexual act with his domestic help.
Apart from Raghavji, two others including his aide--Suresh Singh Chauhan and the latter’s kin Sher Singh Chauhan were also booked. The complainant had alleged that they had also blackmailed and sodomised him apart from the ex-minister.
Additional superintendent of police (ASP) Dilip Singh Tomar confirmed that a case was registered. “The complainant’s statement has been recorded and he has now been sent for medical examination,” he said.
The complainant reached the Habibganj police station at around 1 pm. For almost six hours, he remained in the police station.
Here, officials recorded his statement and examined the CDs which he had produced as evidence of his being a victim of unnatural sex.
The complainant’s statement was also videorecorded.
Earlier in the morning, the complainant had spoken to media at Leader of Opposition in Assembly Ajay Singh’s bungalow. Later, he went to police station.
Here, there was heavy security outside. Dozens of police officers were posted and even the gates of the police station were closed for some time.
Several DSPs and TIs were present. Even crowd control vehicle was posted outside police station. The Samajwadi Party activists reached the police station and raised slogans against Raghavji.
Inside, the complainant narrated the entire turn of events since 2010 when he first came to meet Raghavji.
He alleged that Raghavji sodomised him. Later when the minister’s staff member, Sher Singh, discovered it, he and his brother-in-law Suresh also sexually abused him.
The cases have been registered under sections 377 (unnatural act), 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC.
It was on Friday that the charges against Raghavji became known. The complainant had reached the police station and had given his application along with the affidavit.
The police had then asked him to provide original document and evidence (CD), which was mentioned in application. Two days later, the complainant appeared again and after he submitted the proof, the case was registered.
