Sirohi, Rajasthan: In a disturbing turn of events, nearly 20 women have come forward accusing the chairperson and former commissioner of Sirohi Municipal Council in Rajasthan of gang-raping them under the false pretense of offering employment in Anganwadi centers.
The allegations, initially dismissed as a false complaint, have gained traction after eight victims petitioned the Rajasthan High Court. The court has now ordered a formal case to be registered against the accused, Mahendra Mevada and Mahendra Choudhary.
According to the victims, the accused lured them with promises of jobs and provided them with accommodation and meals. However, the food allegedly contained sedatives, rendering them unconscious and vulnerable to sexual assault.
Upon regaining consciousness, the victims claim they were confronted with the horrific truth – they had been deceived and gang-raped. The accused further allegedly filmed the assaults and used the footage to blackmail the victims for money, demanding Rs 5 lakh each.
The allegations have sparked outrage and calls for justice. The Deputy Superintendent of Police, Paras Choudhary, initially dismissed the complaint as false, but the High Court’s intervention highlights the seriousness of the accusations.
