The Grand old Congress party has stuck in the whirl of distress these days. From threatening farmer to kidnapping LS candidate, several allegations have become hurdles in the way of winning Lok Sabha elections this time. In a shocking matter involving the Congress party in Rajasthan, a case has been registered against its lawmaker from Alwar’s Rajgarh, Johari Lal Meena, on the charge of raping a widow several times.
Senior Congress leader Johari Lal Meena is MLA from Rajgarh-Laxmangarh seat in Alwar. Meena won the recent assembly elections with a great margin.
News agency ANI reported that the victim met Meena for the first time almost two years ago, post which Meena made several visits to her home. Allegedly, during one such meeting when he found the victim to be unwell and under the pretext of taking her to a doctor, Meena took her to a hotel in the temple town of Mehndipur Balaji and gave her some medicines that left her unconscious.
In that incapacitated state she was allegedly raped by Meena. Also, based on the complaint, Meena recorded the incident and threatened the victim of releasing the video if she made any complaint against him, before dropping her back to her village.
The woman claims that later, on 24 March 2019 Meena forced her to visit his home where he raped her again.
On this behest, a case has been registered against Meena under section 328, 384 and 376 (punishment for rape) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the investigation has been handed over to the state CB-CID.
