Shahjahanpur: A Shahjahanpur-based woman, who was allegedly sexually assaulted by Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Roshanlal Verma’s son Manoj Verma on Wednesday claimed that she is receiving threats to her life for filing complaint and goons asked her to step back in the case. Roshanlal is MLA from Shahjahanpur’s Tilhar constituency.
“Goons barged into the victim’s residence and threatened her to withdraw her complaint, saying they would kill her if she didn’t step back,” told victim’s lawyer Avdhesh Singh.
The victim, who is demanding justice from past five years, had also urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to ensure action against the accused. This comes after BJP leader Kuldeep Singh Sengar’s alleged involvement in Unnao rape case.
The incident grabbed attention when the alleged victim made an attempt to commit suicide outside Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath’s residence.
