Purnia: Rupam Pathak, accused of
stabbing ruling BJP MLA Rajkishore Keshari to death last
month, on Friday disowned the complaint filed by lawyer Hemant
Kumar charging Bihar Deputy Chief Minister S K Modi with
sexual exploitation and conspiring against her.
"I don`t know what he (Hemant Kumar) has filed... I have
not not charged Modi with sexual exploitation and conspiracy",
Rupam, currently lodged in judicial custody in divisional jail in Purnia,
told the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate,
Satya Prakash Mishra.
Rupam said she had already removed Hamant Kumar to plead
her case and appointed a new advocate in his place. "I have
also not not applied for bail", she told the court.
Earlier, the jail authorities produced Rupam and
journalist Navlesh Pathak, who was also arrested in connection
with the murder, before the court of Mishra.
Hemant Kumar, who had earlier argued Rupam`s case in the
court of CJM, later on February nine filed a complaint in the
court of Chief Judicial Magistrate accusing Modi and three
others of sexual exploitation and conspiring against her. The
complaint is yet to be taken up for hearing.
The ruling BJP MLA was stabbed to death by Rupam in full
public view in Purnia on January four.
