Aligarh: A woman has charged six persons, including district BSP president, of assaulting and later parading her naked in a market following which a case has been
registered against them by the police.
A case of assault against six persons, including the BSP leader Moolchand Bhagel, has been filed, Superintendent of Police Maan Singh Chouhan said.
He, however, said the woman was not paraded naked.
The incident took place on June 2 when 45-year-old Brima Devi had a minor tiff with some persons while she was on her way back from a temple. She was then beaten up.
She alleged in her complaint to police that she was also paraded naked through the village Chandaukha, 20 kms from here.
Bir Singh, husband of Brima Devi, alleged that the police was trying to dilute the charges against the BSP leader because of political pressure.
The woman was detained by the police for a few hours in connection with some case. She was, however, let off later.
"Instead of arresting the persons named in the report, the police has arrested Devi on a case filed against her by a group ten days back," Singh alleged.
