AGRA: A BJP MLA has been booked for harassment and his son for alleged rape after a 36-year-old girl lodged a grievance towards them, police mentioned on Wednesday.

According to the FIR registered at Tajganj Police Station, the lady was allegedly raped by Laxmi Kant Verma, son of BJP MLA from the Fatehabad constituency Chhotey Lal Verma, again in 2003 when she was 17 years previous.

The girl was a buddy of the MLA’s daughter and would go to their home often, she mentioned in her grievance.

On November 16, 2003, Laxmi Kant Verma gave her a drink allegedly laced with sedatives and after she fainted, he raped her, the lady mentioned.

She claimed that the accused recorded a video of the act and threatened her with dire penalties if she instructed anybody about it, based on the grievance.

The girl mentioned someday later, Laxmi Kant Verma married her at a temple and received her a job as a receptionist at a cyber cafe in Agra that was owned by him and his buddy.

The couple’s firstborn was a lady and because the accused needed the second little one to be male, he pressured her to get an abortion.
