Ravish Kumar breaks silence, condemns his brother accused in the Bihar sex scandal

Brajesh Kumar Pandey, who is the brother of noted journalist Ravish Kumar, has been absconding after been accused of running a sex racket in Bihar. Brajesh was also a senior Congress leader and the VP of the party, but was forced to resign after the allegations surfaced.

There have been reports that suggested that attempts were being made to suppress the case by exerting political pressure on the authorities. The reports claimed that Brajesh was being shielded as he was the brother of an influential journalist.

For the victim, who had filed this case, things took a turn for the worse when the police, who first were reluctant to lodge an FIR, started questioning her repeatedly to point out inconsistencies. Meanwhile, the main accused Nikhil was arrested, but Brajesh is reportedly hiding in Delhi.

While police hunts Brajesh Kumar, people were intrigued by Ravish Kumar’s silence in the whole case. Ravish, who is vocally an idealist in most cases, was keeping quiet when it came to accusations against his own brother. Not just was Brajesh accused of a serious crime, he was not also turning himself in to seek penance for his crime. Plus to make matters worse, Ravish hadn’t even denied the reported political pressure that was exerted on the police to go slow in this case.

Ravish though has finally decided to break his silence in the case. He reportedly released a statement to the media on Friday wherein he acknowledged the charges against his brother. He denied his hand in trying to save his brother and condemned his brother for not turning himself in and aiding the authorities. He however added that he was certain the charges against his brother were false and hoped that the truth soon comes out.

He further warned his brother that if he didn’t surrender to the police by 31st April, he will blacken the screen of his TV and also his own face in protest. The proposed black day will be observed on 32nd April, he confirmed. Obviously, it is April Fool’s Joke. Ravish Kumar has done nothing of this sort.

However, the rest of the article is true. So far as the latest updates are concerned, police has still been unable to trace Ravish Kumar’s brother while the main accused Nikhil has been sent to police custody. According to reports, Nikhil is not being grilled the way he should have been by the police.
