Jaipur: Dausa MP Kirori Lal Meena, who was on a dharna here seeking justice for a tribal woman allegedly raped by an IPS officer about 13 years ago, was arrested along with 13 others in the wee hours on Wednesday.

"Fourteen people, including Meena, were arrested under section 151 of CrPC (arrest to prevent the commission of cognizable offences) and taken to Ajmer Jail, while the other persons who were on dharna were sent to their houses," IG (Jaipur Range-I) B L Soni told a news agency.

Extra force have been deployed at the dharna site near civil line railway crossing here as a precautionary measure.

The woman was allegedly abducted and taken to Noida in Uttar Pradesh in January 1997 where she was allegedly raped by former Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Madhukar Tandon, then posted in police headquarters and is now said to be absconding.

The victim, hailing from Dausa district, was sitting on a dharna here along with her family members and the Independent MP after she was not allowed to meet Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot at his residence.

Around 50 people led by the MP were also on dharna.
