LLM Student who accused Swami Chinmayanand of Rape, Arrested by SIT


The female LLM student who accused Swami Chinmayanand of sexual harassment and rape has been arrested today by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) on the allegations of extortion leveled by the BJP Leader.


As soon as the victim alleged Swami Chinmayand of sexual harassment and rape and the SC constituted a SIT to investigate into the allegations, Chinmayanad also filed an extortion complaint with the SIT against anonymous persons. The SIT then arrested three persons named Sanjay, Sachin, and Vikram in connection to the extortion case.


Upon further investigation, the SIT also suspected involvement of the victim in the said extortion case as she was known to the three accused persons. As per Chinmayanand’s allegations, the extortionists had demanded a sum of Rs 5 Crore from him and threatened of releasing objectionable video of Chinmayand with the victim online.


After the arrest of above named three accused persons, the victim filed an application before the Allahabad High Court for grant of protection from arrest. But, the High Court declined the same stating that the bench was constituted with the sole purpose of monitoring investigation by SIT and was satisfied with the same till now. The bench asked the girl to move an application before the concerned court.


The SIT also found out that the girl victim had exchanged phone calls with the three accused persons over 4,300 times during the period when the alleged extortion calls and messages were made to Chinmanayand.


The law student then filed an interim bail plea before a sessions court on Tuesday. The application was admitted by the Court and the matter was fixed for further hearing on Thursday. In the meanwhile, the SIT arrested the law student today around 9 am, leaving the pending bail application as infructuous.


The girl was first brought to Shahjahanpur Kotwali police station immediately after arrest and served with a notice to arrest under section 41 (Notice of Arrest to an Accused) of the Criminal Procedure Code, 1971. She was then taken for a medical examination in the morning and produced before the Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate in the afternoon. The girl has been sent to 14 days judicial custody by the Court.


Swami Chinmayanad was already arrested by SIT on Friday, September 20, and has been sent to 14-days judicial custody. But the BJP leader is presently admitted in a hospital after he complained of severe chest pain and other health problems. His bail application was dismissed on Tuesday by a CJM Court with a direction to move the same before a sessions court.


Swami Chinmayanand is a former Union Minister and BJP Leader and undoubtedly a more powerful person than the victim in terms of social, political and financial factors.
