The law student from Uttar Pradesh who went missing after leveling charges that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Chinmayanand, on Monday said that he raped her for over a year and despite her complaints, the state police was reluctant in filling FIR against him.
On August 24, the women made several accusations on Facebook against the leader, after which she was on a run, fearing backlash. Police later found her in Rajasthan, after nearly a week.
The new allegations come weeks after the Supreme Court ordered a special probe as she went underground after suggesting Chinmayanand had sexually assaulted several women at a college in Shahjahanpur where he is the director.
While speaking to media in Shahjahanpur, she said,“On Sunday, the SIT (special investigation team) quizzed me for about 11 hours. I have told them about the rape. Even after telling them everything, they have not arrested Chinmayanand yet.”
The woman said that she had been on the run fearing for her life and that the first time she approached Shahjahanpur police, the district magistrate compelled her family to withdraw the complaint after telling her father to “think about the consequences”.
The officer, Indra Vikram Singh, declined to comment on the accusation.
BJP leader Chinamayanand has denied the several allegations made by the law student and said that he was the target of an extortion attempt by the student. The woman told she had evidence of the rape. “I have all the proofs. The hostel where I lived has been sealed. It should be opened in front of the media,” she said, adding that she would give the proof, including video clips, at an appropriate time.
