Jaipur court issues notice to Modi’s minister Nihal Chand in rape case
The lone representative from Rajasthan in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s council of ministers, Minister of State for Chemicals and Fertilisers
Nihal Chand is facing trouble. He has been issued notice by a Jaipur court in connection with an alleged rape case.
The rape survivor, alleging sexual exploitation by her husband had filed a First Information
Report or FIR in 2011. She had accused her husband of drugging her and then letting her associates
rape her. The FIR also named MOS chemicals and fertilizers Mr Meghwal, now the only minister from Rajasthan in the
Modi cabinet, as one of the people who sexually exploited her.
The police, a year later in 2012, had closed the case saying the charges were false and fabricated.
The woman had then approached a district court which had dismissed the charges. She appealed,
following which additional district judge Prem Prakash Gupta issued notices to Mr Meghwal and 17 others in this
case asking them to respond by August 20.
The Congress has demanded that PM Modi must immediately sack the minister.
“After Narendra Modi’s speech, today is testing time for him. It is a serious issue
and PM must immediately dismiss him. All the talks about austerity and transparency, they must think about it,”
said Congress leader Sachin Pilot.
