The law student had gone missing after accusing BJP leader Swami Chinmayanand, 72, of harassment. Her family had expressed concerns about her safety and accused the Police of trying to pressurise them to tone down the complaint in which the senior BJP leader was named.
She had accused “a big leader of the saint society” of threatening her and “destroying the lives of several girls”. However she did not name Chinmayanand in this video. Her father filed a police complaint, wherein he accused the BJP leader who has a sprawling ashram in Shahjahanpur and runs several colleges in the eastern UP town.
Supreme Court took suo motu cognisance of the case. Apex Court Bench headed by Justice R Banumathi ordered the UP Police to produce her in Court after a group of lawyers expressed concern about her safety. Advocate Shobha Gupta stated that,“We don’t know if the girl is safe”.
Bench ordered that,“We direct the learned counsel appearing for Uttar Pradesh to produce the girl along with the police team”.
