On June 18, Narain, who is currently involved working with an NGO engaged in environmental protection, alleged in a social media post that Champat Rai had a role to play in one Alka Lahoti’s land grabbing case.

In his post, Vineet Narain also attached an application that had details of a cowshed belonging to Alka Lahoti. It is pertinent to note that Alka Lahoti was also been booked by the police, along with Vineet Narain and his aides, Rajneesh and Lahoti under 14 sections of the IPC and two sections of the IT Act.

In the FIR filed by Champat Rai’s brother, Sanjay Bansal, he said, “All that was said in the post were false and fabricated… Vineet Narain has hatched a conspiracy with Alka and the other accused against the family. The sentiments of crores of Hindus have been hurt and there is a possibility of social order being disturbed”.

According to the complainant, when he contacted Vineet Narain over the allegations, his aide Rajneesh abused and threatened him.
