Politician who contested the last Vidhan Sabha election molests woman

Nagpur: If news published in a local newspaper today is to be believed, a youth leader of a national political party has been allegedly involved in the molestation of a woman, a resident of Shatabdi Nagar. The leader, who is into the real estate business, has contested the last Vidhan Sabha elections on the ticket of a national party from South Nagpur. Though, party office-bearers had an inkling of the incident, no one is ready to come forward and talk about it.

Sources said that the woman belongs to a highly educated family. The husband of the woman is a professor in one of the reputed city colleges. It so happened that the victim woman came in contact with the leader in connection with a plot transaction. After this, the leader kept regular touch with the woman and used to call her on some pretext or another.

Meanwhile, the leader tried to sexually assault the woman under the pretext of showing her a plot of land. Enraged, the woman narrated the entire incident to her husband and relatives.

On Wednesday, the woman lodged a complaint at a police station against the leader. When the leader came to know about the complaint against him, he too reached there along with his supporters and lawyers. A lot of commotion followed at the police station as both the groups came face to face against each other. They traded charges against one another.

Finally, a deal was struck between the two parties with the leader accepted to give a hefty sum to the victim to close the case.
