Cong seeks security for man who accused MP minister of sodomy
Bhopal: Leader of Opposition in Madhya Pradesh Assembly Ajay Singh on Sunday demanded security for the domestic help who has levelled sodomy charges against former state finance minister Raghavji.
The state government should provide security to the victim, Rajkumar Dangi, who on Thursday had lodged a police complaint against Raghavji, Ajay told reporters here.
He also said that he had written letters to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Director-General of Police (DGP) Nandan Dubey asking for security to Dangi.
When asked about the claims made by Dangi`s father yesterday that his son was mentally disturbed and had made such complaints in the past and even blackmailed people, Ajay said that one should go by what the victim says and not by what his father states under pressure.
Dangi, who had allegedly disappeared after filing the complaint against 79-year-old Raghavji, was also present at the conference along with the Congress leader.
Ajay also demanded the resignation of Chouhan over the issue.
He alleged that Chouhan himself had reportedly seen the CD, which purportedly showed the scandal-hit minister in a compromising position, which was objectionable.
"If former Union Law Minister Ashwini Kumar can be asked to resign for having summoned a file from the CBI, Chouhan should also be asked to resign," he demanded.
If in the BJP`s view, Ashwini Kumar had tampered with evidence, then the same thing had been done by Chouhan by reportedly asking the police to provide the CD to him for watching it at his residence, Ajay alleged.
The BJP`s state unit had yesterday suspended its senior leader Shiv Shankar Pateria from the primary membership of the party, hours after he claimed he had a role in "exposing" the alleged immoral acts of Ragahvji, who resigned after the scandal surfaced.
Pateria had claimed before the media that he had "motivated" the victim of Raghavji`s alleged sodomy act to prepare purported CDs of the unnatural act.
However, Pateria claimed he had no role in Dangi filing a police complaint against the former Minister.
Raghavji had earlier told reporters at his residence that things will become clear if a thorough probe is conducted in the matter.
