The law student, who had filed a case against former Union Minister Chinmayananda, aka Krishnapal Singh, turned hostile in the court during her testimony. The prosecution termed him as an accused and filed an application against him under Section 340 of the CrPC. MP-MLA Court Special Judge Pawan Kumar Rai has ordered the application to be filed. The case will now be heard on October 15.
According to public prosecutor Abhay Tripathi, on September 5 last year, the victim had filed a case against Chinmayananda for having sex in her custody at Lodhi Colony in Thane, New Delhi. This FIR was merged in a lawsuit filed by his father in Shahjahanpur. The SIT began investigating the case, along with recording the victim’s statement. In Shahjahanpur, the victim’s statement was taken before the magistrate. On October 9, the victim, contrary to both these statements, presented her case.
This was the whole case:
In the Chinmayananda case on August 27, 2019, the victim’s father lodged an FIR in Shahjahanpur Kotwali, stating that his daughter was pursuing LL.M. She lived in a college hostel. His mobile is off since August 23. Saw her video on Facebook, in which Swami Chinmayanand and some other people were threatening to rape her and kill her. His daughter’s room was locked. He also demanded to have the video and daughter’s room sealed before the media. Chinmayananda was sent to jail in judicial custody on September 20, 2019, in this case. The SIT filed the charge sheet on November 4, 2019. On February 3, 2020, Chinmayanand’s bail was approved from the High Court bench.
