New Delhi: The Delhi police on Tuesday took a woman into custody for questioning, after she had allegedly honey-trapped Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader KC Patel and accused him of rape, an official said.
"We have taken the woman, who honey-trapped the BJP MP, into custody for questioning," a senior police official told IANS.
The woman was picked from her Indirapuram residence in Uttar Pradesh. According to the police, the woman had demanded Rs five crore from Patel after having trapped him.
Patel, the MP from Gujarat's Valsad constituency, filed a complaint with the police last week following which the woman approached a city court, claiming the police did not act on her rape complaint against the lawmaker.
While the woman had alleged that the MP raped her on several occasions, Patel claimed he was drugged and obscene videos and photos were shot by her.
Patel had alleged the woman invited him to a place in Ghaziabad for some work where she offered him a soft drink which was laced with sedatives, police said. The woman was arrested from her home in Ghaziabad, the police said.
The police had also claimed that it has emerged that the woman was involved in similar instances earlier. The MP claimed she threatened to file a rape case against him if he did not pay her Rs five crore.
Further details are awaited.
