Mumbai based model accuses Hemant Soren of raping her at threatening her with life
Yesterday, a letter had gone viral on social media where a Mumbai-based model Mumtaz (name changed) had requested police protection fearing safety to her life from Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren, whom she has accused of raping her. She has recently registered a complaint accusing Soren of not only raping her but also attempting to kill her.
It was reported that the alleged victim had registered a complaint in 2013 against Hemant Soren, however, had later withdrawn it.
In her letter, the model wrote how Hemant Soren had behaved like an animal and a sex maniac to rape her. Thereafter Hemant Soren allegedly asked the complainant to leave the premises in the wee hours of the morning with a threat that if she tells anyone, she’d be killed. The victim said that Soren promised her to help her to launch her film career if she kept quiet.
After the withdrawal of the said complaint, the complainant shifted out her residence and was under constant fear. Under fear of harm to her and the family, the victim stated that she tried to forget the ignominy she had suffered and was trying to lead a peaceful life.
The issue was propped by Godda MP Nishikant Dubey in June this year, who had demanded the reopening of rape and kidnapping case which was lodged by the Mumbai-based girl against Soren way back in 2013.
However, rejecting all allegations, Soren had also filed a Rs 100 crore each defamation suit against Dubey and others, alleging they had published defamatory statements against him.
