FIR against former MLA in Dholpur

Dholpur (Raj): A dalit woman here has accused a former MLA Jaswant Singh Gujjar of trying to rape her even as the legislator denied the charges.

"The woman lodged FIR around midnight in which she alleged that the former MLA caught her when she was going back home alone from a nearby place last evening and attempted to rape her.

However, she said, he left her and sped away in his vehicle when she raised an alarm," SHO Bari Ajay Kumar said.

When contacted, the former (BJP) MLA Gujjar refused his involvement in any such incident and said that the lady was levelling the allegation to tarnish his image.
