New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Tuesday arrested a woman for allegedly honey-trapping a BJP MP and demanding Rs five crore from him.
The Woman was arrested from her residence in Ghaziabad.
KC Patel, the MP from Gujarat’s Valsad, had filed a Complaint alleging the woman invited him to a place in Ghaziabad for some work where she offered him a soft drink which was mixed with sedatives.
The woman filmed him in an objectionable manner, the MP said, adding the woman had threatened to file a rape case and make the video clips public if he didn’t comply with her demands.
Addressing the media in Vapi, the 67-year-old MP had said: “I am innocent in this case. The allegations made by the woman are baseless. She wanted to defame me and had demanded Rs 5 crore from me. She had invited me to her residence and spiked tea or soft drinks; what happened later I don’t know. I have given my statements to Delhi Police. I have full faith in police investigations and one day people will know that I am innocent.”
The woman had also approached a city court, claiming the police did not act on her rape complaint against the MP. In her complaint to the police the woman has alleged that the MP raped her on several occasions.
Earlier, the woman filed a complaint at a Delhi court alleging that Patel called her to his house to discuss a legal matter and raped her. “When I went to his residence, his maid was there. After dinner, his maid went outside the flat than [then] he raped me. He threatened me saying he is a powerful man as his government is in power,” the complaint stated.
It is being suspected by the police that that the woman was involved in similar cases earlier as well.
