‘Chinmayanand Raped, Exploited Me Physically For A Year’: Uttar Pradesh Law Student

BJp Leader and Former Union Minister Swami Chinmayananda

Former union minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Swami Chinmayanand raped and exploited me for a year, the Shahjahanpur law student, who had gone missing after alleging harassment at the hands of the same leader, said on Monday.

“Swami Chinmayanand raped me and even exploited me physically for one year,” she said in a press conference. The face of the woman was covered with a headscarf, PTI reported.

“The Delhi Police has registered this complaint at Lodhi Road police station and has forwarded it to Shahjahanpur police, which is not registering the rape case,” she said in a press conference

“On Sunday, the SIT quizzed me for about 11 hours. I have told them about the rape. Even after telling them everything, they have not arrested Chinmayanand yet,” PTI quoted her as saying.

On September 4, the Supreme Court had ordered the transfer of the Shahjahanpur law student and her brother to other law colleges affiliated to Bareilly university saying, “for us their future is important”.

The woman had gone missing after levelling allegations against Chinmayanand in a video and was later found in Rajasthan by UP police.

The apex court judges had said the woman raised certain grievances against the institution where she studied and her parents had some apprehensions about the safety of their children.

The court, however, had underscored that it was not expressing any opinion on the grievances and apprehensions raised by them.
