In a courtroom twist to the high-profile case, a law student who had accused former Union minister Chinmayanand of sexually exploiting her disowned her statements to police and now faces a perjury charge. RRA世界播


Appearing before an MP-MLA court in Lucknow, the LLM student categorically denied that she had levelled any allegation against the former Union minister as the prosecution had charged. RRA世界播


At this, the prosecution immediately moved an application under Section 340 of the CrPC, seeking action against her for perjury. RRA世界播


Judge P K Rai directed his office to register the application and asked the prosecution to furnish a copy of the application to the victim and the accused. RRA世界播

P K Rai法官指示他的办公室对申请进行登记,并要求控方向受害者和被告提供申请的副本。RRA世界播

The court fixed October 15 for hearing on the application. RRA世界播


The Allahabad High Court in February this year granted bail to Chinmayanand, whose trust runs the Shahjahanpur law college where the woman studied. He was arrested in September last year. RRA世界播

阿拉哈巴德高等法院今年2月批准了钦马亚南德的保释,他的信托基金经营着这名女子就读的沙贾汉普尔法学院(Shahjahanpur Law College)。他于去年9月被捕。RRA世界播

The case was registered under Section 376-C of the IPC, an offence pertaining to the abuse of one's position by a person in authority to 'induce or seduce' a woman under his charge to have 'sexual intercourse not amounting to the offence of rape'. RRA世界播


Chinmayanand (72) also faced charges under Sections 342 (wrongful confinement), 354-D (stalking) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC. RRA世界播


According to government lawyer Abhay Tripathi, the victim had lodged an FIR in this regard with the Lodhi Colony police station of New Delhi on September 5, 2019. RRA世界播

根据政府律师Abhay Tripathi的说法,受害者于2019年9月5日向新德里Lodhi殖民地警察局提交了这方面的FIR。RRA世界播

Her father lodged another complaint in Shahjahanpur and both FIRs were merged. RRA世界播


An SIT had recorded her statement. Later, her statement under Section 164 of the CrPC was recorded in Shahjahanpur. RRA世界播


In both statements, she had supported the FIR version but now during the trial, she changed her statement and denied the facts mentioned in the complaint. RRA世界播


“Since she has turned hostile, I have moved an application under Section 340 of the CrPC,” Tripathi said. RRA世界播


Earlier, the investigation officer had cited 33 witnesses and 29 documentary evidence in the 13-page charge sheet. RRA世界播


The Allahabad high court had on February 3, 2020 transferred the trial from Shahjahanpur to the Lucknow's MP-MLA court. RRA世界播


The case first came to light after the woman went missing on August 24, a day after she posted a video on social media alleging that a 'senior leader of the sant community' was harassing and threatening to kill her. RRA世界播


Her father filed a complaint with police, accusing Chinmayanand of sexually harassing her, a charge refuted by the former Union minister's lawyer who claimed it was a 'conspiracy' to blackmail him. RRA世界播


An SIT was constituted by the Uttar Pradesh government on the orders of the Supreme Court in September to investigate the charges levelled by the woman. RRA世界播


The law student was also later charged with trying to extort money from Chinmayanand. The 23-year-old woman and her three friends were booked on Chinmayanand's complaint that they had demanded Rs 5 crore from him. RRA世界播


The former Union minister alleged that they had threatened to make public video clips that showed him getting massages from the student. She was, however, granted bail in December. RRA世界播


The Supreme Court had last week set aside an Allahabad High Court order allowing Chinmayanand to get a copy of statement of the woman recorded before a magistrate in connection with the case against him, saying 'utmost confidentiality is required to be maintained' in sexual exploitation cases.
