Barabanki:  The Uttar Pradesh Police have finally booked BSP leader Aslam, four days after a girl set herself on fire after being molested by him.

But the BSP leader has been booked only for assault and not for abetment to suicide or sexual harassment.

"I said you are older than me, don't say such things. He would harass me daily, but I never said anything," the girl said.

The 16-year-old Dalit girl of Sihali village in Barabanki district set herself on fire after the BSP leader allegedly beat her up publicly and molested her several times on her way to school. The girl is in hospital with 65 per cent burns.
