A case has been registered against Rajasthan Congress MLA from Rajgarh, Johari Lal Meena, on Friday for allegedly raping a widow several times, reports ANI.
The FIR has been reportedly registered under IPC section 376 (punishment for rape) against the Congress MLA after a criminal complaint was filed against him in a local court.
The victim, who is a widow, had met Meena for the first time two years ago. After the first meeting, the Congress leader allegedly made several visits to the victim’s home. On one such occasion when the victim was unwell, Meena, on the pretext of taking her to doctor, instead took her to a hotel in Mehndipur Balaji and gave her some medicines that left her unconscious.
Meena then allegedly raped the victim who was in an inebriated condition and was unable to stop him. According to the victim, Meena not only raped her but threatened her while returning back to the village stating that he had made a video of the incident. He threatened to make the clip public if she dared to file a complaint against him.
The victim also added that Meena once again forced her to visit his home and raped her again on March 24. A case has now been registered under section 328, 384 and 376 of IPC and the investigation has been handed over to the state CB-CID.
