Brother of Ravish Kumar, accused in Bihar sex scandal, reportedly hiding in Delhi

While the main accused of Bihar sex scandal Nikhil Priyadarshi and some of his accomplices have been arrested, police is still not able to arrest Brajesh Kumar Pandey – the former Vice President of Bihar Congress and brother of NDTV journalist Ravish Kumar – who has also been accused by the complainant girl.

The complainant, who was minor (underage) when she was allegedly sexually exploited by Nikhil and Brajesh, belongs to the dalit community and is daughter of a Congress leader. Nikhil and his accomplices are also accused of running a sex racket, which may involve many high-profile personalities from state politics and administration.

Nikhil and his father were arrested on 14th March in Uttarakhand and are currently under police custody. Police is investigating them and trying to get more details about the case.

Earlier it was reported that Nikhil had threatened to spill the beans about many influential people if he was troubled in this case. He claimed to possess objectionable videos of many politicians according a to a report in Jansatta.

Latest reports suggest that Nikhil has not yet “exposed” anyone. He is currently denying the charges and claiming that his relationship with the complainant girl was consensual. However, Nikhil accepted that he and Brajesh Kumar Pandey were friends.

Nikhil is further reported to be bragging about his “contributions” to Bihar and claimed that even he wanted to be a politician like Brajesh Kumar Pandey.

According to a report published in Hindustan, Nikhil revealed that he and Brajesh Kumar Pandey were hiding at a politician’s residence in Delhi while both of them were absconding. Nikhil is then speculated to have traveled to places like Kanpur, Lucknow, Shimla, and in Uttarakhand where he was finally arrested. But Brajesh Kumar Pandey is still absconding.

It is now suspected that Brajesh Kumar is still hiding in Delhi. The report in Hindustan claims that even Nikhil has told the police that Brajesh Kumar is in Delhi.

Earlier, opposition leaders like BJP’s Sushil Kumar Modi had claimed that the Bihar police was deliberately going slow on Brajesh Kumar. Some reports too had suggested that there was pressure on police to go slow on Brajesh Kumar, because he was the brother of Ravish Kumar, an influential journalist on the national scale.
