The father of woman law student, who had levelled charges of sexual misconduct and harassment against UP BJP leader Chinmayanand on Wednesday alleged that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) has no prrof against her.
According to The Indian Express reports, the victim’s father said that SIT arrested his daughter on false charges.
“The SIT today arrested my daughter on false allegations. There is no evidence against her and SIT booked her on false charges showing that she was with those three youths (arrested in the extortion case). It is all false. My daughter has nothing to do with this. In her statement, my daughter never confessed to any crime and SIT has been spreading lies in the media.”
The 23-year-old woman was on Tuesday taken into custody on charges of extortion and blackmail. Chinmayanand had accused her and three men of demanding Rs five crore from him.
“The court had yesterday asked SIT to bring all documents related to the case. Since the SIT had no evidence against my daughter, and felt she may get bail, they arrested her. We will be moving a contempt of court plea tomorrow,” her father said.
“We are now sure the SIT was working on directions from the state government… Since day one, they wanted to save Chinmayanand in the case. Despite evidence against him and my daughter’s statement, the SIT never booked Chinmayanand on rape charges. On the direction of the state government, the SIT wanted to build pressure on us so that we stopped pursuing the case against Chinmayanand,” he said.
The woman, on Monday, had put up a bail application in the Allahabad High Court but the same was rejected and the high court asked her to appeal in the district court.
