Advocate rubbishes news of law student who accused Chinmayanand being detained by police in extortion case

The law student from Shahjahanpur, who has accused former Union Minister Swami Chinmayanand of raping and physically exploiting her, was on September 20 (Friday) charged with extortion in a case filed by Chinmayanand, even as the SIT probing the case arrested him.

Update: The law student’s lawyer has rubbished claims that she was detained in the extortion case. He said, “We had filed an anticipatory bail application in the Court. After elaborate discussion Court allowed my application. Court has fixed September 26 as next date for the hearing. Reports of the victim’s arrest is wrong. Till now we have neither received any notice nor any action has been taken against us”.

In the latest development in the Chinmayanand case, the law student from Shahjahanpur, who has accused former minister Swami Chinmayanand of raping and physically exploiting her has been allegedly detained by the SIT for questioning in the extortion case. Her detention comes a day after she was denied anticipatory bail by the Allahabad High Court.

The SIT probing the case has said that they have video evidence of the girl discussing extortion strategy with her friends involved in demanding a ransom from Swami Chinmayanand.

The SIT has taken two others accused, Sachin and Vikram on remand for further investigation in the case. SIT has been granted 95 hours to keep the two accused under remand.

The Allahabad High Court had turned down the law student’s petition seeking a stay on arrest in the extortion case filed by Swami Chinmayanand against her, saying that it has no jurisdiction to pass the order. BJP leader Swami Chinmayanand who is accused of raping the girl had later on filed an extortion case against her.

The law student from Shahjahanpur, who has accused former Union Minister Swami Chinmayanand of raping and physically exploiting her, was on September 20 (Friday) charged with extortion in a case filed by Chinmayanand, even as the SIT probing the case arrested him.

The SIT had also arrested her friend, Sanjay Singh along with two others, who had allegedly sent a WhatsApp message demanding the ransom of Rs 5 crore from Chinmayanand on September 20. According to the SIT chief Naveen Arora, the three had accepted their involvement in the case although the law student had denied the charges.

They have been booked under Indian Penal Code sections 385 (extortion), 506 (criminal intimidation), 201(disappearance of evidence), 35 (criminal act done with a criminal knowledge or intention) and 67 of the Information Technology Act.

SIT chief Naveen Arora said the former BJP MP had confessed to “almost all” the allegations made against him, barring rape. Despite the student’s complaint, Chinmayanand was not charged with rape but was arrested under Section 376 C of the IPC, which pertains to misusing authority to seduce or induce a woman to have sexual intercourse.

The SC had expressed satisfaction over the SIT status report in a sexual assault case filed by a postgraduate student against former Union minister and BJP leader Swami Chinmayanand.
