The law student who went missing from her college hostel days after accusing the former BJP minister of harassment was recovered from Rajasthan's Jaipur, the state told the Supreme Court. She was then shifted to Shajahanpur.

Questioning her whereabouts, the top court asked, "Where is the girl? Can we meet her today? Reveal her exact location with 5 minutes."

The victim went missing soon after accusing the former Union Minister Swami Chinmayanand,  director of the college where she studies, of harassing college students. 

A video of the missing girl had gone viral on August 24 in which she had alleged that a person from `Sant Samaj` has destroyed the lives of many women and he has done the same to her. She also alleged that the person had also warned her that he would kill her and her parents.

The girl`s family has alleged that Swami Chinmayanand is responsible for the law student`s disappearance. The student's father has submitted a written complaint to police, accusing the 72-year-old BJP leader of harassing the victim.  

Police filed an FIR against Swami Chinmayanand on Monday. 

A group of Supreme Court lawyers Wednesday filed a petition urging Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi to take suo moto cognisance of reports of the girl missing.
