New Delhi: BJP parliamentarian KC Patel has alleged that he was drugged and filmed in a compromising state by a woman who has demanded five crores from him. On his complaint, the police have filed a case of blackmail and extortion against a woman lawyer of the Supreme Court.
- BJP MP KC Patel alleged he was drugged and filmed by the woman
- According to the police, the woman heads a honey-trapping gang
- The woman allegedly filed a false case against another MP last year
"I have full faith in justice and doodh ka doodh, paani ka paani ho jayega (we will know the truth)," Mr Patel told the ANI news agency, adding that he would cooperate fully with the police investigations.
The 67-year-old Lok Sabha MP has alleged that he was drugged and then filmed by the woman, who later accused him of rape and threatened to upload the video and photos online. He has told the police that the woman asked him for help and had him accompany her to her house in Ghaziabad near Delhi.
The woman has told the police that she was raped by the lawmaker at his official home.
She says she met the politician first on March 3 at the Supreme Court and after that, she was raped by him several times.
According to the police, the woman heads a gang that specialises in honey-trapping high profile people, especially lawmakers after approaching them for help.
The woman had filed a rape case against a Congress lawmaker too last year, in almost similar circumstances. The case was dropped.
The Delhi Police has set up a team to investigate the complaint of Mr Patel, who is from Gujarat and represents the Valsad constituency in parliament.
"A case has been registered, an investigation is on. Action will be taken as per law," said senior Delhi police officer MK Meena.
