A woman has alleged that she was raped by Chhattisgarh Home Minister Ramsewak Paikra’s nephew Shamodh Paikra’s in the state’s Surajpur district in 2014. The woman, who claimed to be a mother of two-and-a-half-year-old child, used to study with the Home Minister’s nephew in 2014 when they became close.
Talking to ANI, the woman said, "We used to study together in 2014. He exploited me sexually and said that he’ll marry me, but didn’t."
As per the complaint filed by the woman, the two stopped talking after she got pregnant. She further said in the complaint that Shamodh also took her to hospital under the false pretence of DNA tests as he wanted to get the child aborted.
However, she decided to keep the baby and registered a complaint with the police.
The Surajpur district Police Superintendent (SP) G Jaiswal said that they were informed about the incident and a probe is underway. "We have registered an FIR and we are investigating the case," said Jaiswal. The accused has not been arrested yet.
