Madhya Pradesh BJP general secretary (organisation) and RSS man Arvind Menon also faces political heat due to an affidavit in which scandalous charges were levelled against him by a woman.
When the woman, as she alleged in the affidavit, failed to get a complaint lodged with Jabalpur police due to the latter’s defiance and threat to her she approached MP Human Rights Commission.
The commission reportedly sent its notice to Jabalpur police to get its reply and sent a reminder again on June 29 to seek the reply within two weeks.
The woman has charged the general secretary with emotionally and physically exploiting her for two years.
“Mai sire se sab aaropon ko kharij karta hun. Ye do saal purana mamla hai (I dismiss all the charges right from the word go.
This is a two years old case)”, said the state BJP president Narenrdra Singh Tomar in reply to journalists questions on Sunday in regard with the woman’s complaint.
Journalists sought to know why the party did not take action against Menon while it was prompt to take action against Raghavji despite the fact both faced similar charges.
As a section of media broke the news regarding Jabalpur police not replying to the MPHRC’s notice superintendent of police Jabalpur Sriharinarayanchari Mishra called a press conference to assert that the police got a letter from the human rights commission on March 11, 2011 regarding charges of a woman against Arvind Menon.
He said additional superintendent of police Satnedra Shukla looked into the charges as mentioned in the letter.
It was found in inquiry that no complaint was lodged with Omti police station in Jabalpur in this regard.
He said the whereabouts of the woman could also not be known.
This information was given to Human Rights Commission through a letter dated July 1, 2011. The information was furnished again to the commission on March 15, 2012 and October 11, 2012.
Also, he said, the charges of the woman were mentioned on non-judicial stamp paper, not on affidavit.
