Chirag Paswan accused of not helping rape victim
In the rape case registered against Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) MP Prince Paswan, the victim has accused former LJP president Chirag Paswan of not helping. The victim said that Chirag Paswan only assured her repeatedly but did not help. The victim told that Chirag had called her to the office and said that the matter would be looked into but nothing was done. On the contrary, Chirag said that the victim is blackmailing the accused.
LJP MP Prince Paswan, MP from Samastipur in Bihar, has been booked by Delhi Police on charges of rape. Officials gave this information on Tuesday. A senior official said the case was registered on the directions of the court. “The court order came on Thursday and we have registered a case under relevant sections at the Connaught Place police station,” the officer said.
‘Prince was also present when I reached office on Chirag’s call’
The victim said, ‘I had told Chirag Paswan about my problem and he had assured in December last that he would meet me. But after that nothing was done from their side. During this, attempts were made to track me, malign my image and even kill me.
The victim told, ‘I was called to meet him at Chirag’s office on January 14. There Prince was also in the office with him. I was assured that the matter would be looked into but nothing happened.
Speaking further, the victim said, ‘A false FIR was registered against me alleging honeytrap. This happened after I joined JDU on 3 February. Around 20-25 policemen came to my house and whatever evidence was in my phone, camera and laptop was snatched from me. I also did not get any help from Connaught Place station, rather they told that nothing can happen as the complaint was against high profile people.
Victim’s allegation – Chirag called me blackmailer
The victim told that the accused sexually assaulted her in his office in Western Court. According to the victim, Chirag wrote in a letter to his uncle on June 15 that the victim was blackmailing Prince. The rape victim said, ‘How can he (Chirag Paswan) decide that I am a blackmailer? Has the court declared me a blackmailer? I hope that I will get justice from the court.
Prince is also the president of the party’s Bihar unit. The FIR in the matter was registered on the directions of a Delhi court, almost three months after the victim lodged a police complaint against him in Delhi.
