The Delhi Police on Sunday filed a 32-page chargesheet in the KC Patel honey-trap case in Tis Hazari Court.
Patel, a BJP parliamentarian, had accused a woman lawyer of honeytrapping and blackmailing him to cough up Rs 5 crore, threatening that she would make public a video clip of him in a compromising position. The MP for Valsad in Gujarat filed a complaint with Delhi Police after the lawyer accused the lawmaker of rape.
Patel had said the woman befriended him and took him to her home in Ghaziabad to meet her family. He alleged that she gave him a drink laced with sedatives and he fell unconscious, following which she recorded his objectionable videos and clicked photos that she later used to blackmail him.
She even allegedly threatened to press rape charges against him if he refused to pay. The woman had also alleged that the MP had assaulted her. When asked about why she made a CD she had said that the MP was threatening her and she wanted to keep it as a proof.
According to sources, the chargesheet includes name of three accused, including the woman lawyer and statements of 21 witnesses. The three men, police said, used to take care of the logistics while her job was to trap businessmen or politicians and get them to her residence.
