Rajasthan rape case: MP seeking justice arrested
Jaipur, Dec 30: Dausa MP Kirori Lal Meena, who was on a dharna seeking justice for a tribal woman allegedly raped by an IPS officer about 13 years ago, was arrested on Wednesday, Dec 30.

"Fourteen people, including Meena, were arrested under section 151 of CrPC and taken to Ajmer Jail, while the other persons who were on dharna were sent to their houses," IG (Jaipur Range-I) B L Soni said.

Extra force have been deployed at the dharna site near civil line railway crossing here as a precautionary measure.

The woman was allegedly kidnapped and taken to Noida in Uttar Pradesh in Jan 1997.

She was allegedly raped by former deputy inspector general (DIG) Madhukar Tandon, then posted in police headquarters and is now said to be absconding.

The victim, hailing from Dausa district, was sitting on a dharna in Jaipur along with her family members and the Independent MP after she was not allowed to meet chief minister Ashok Gehlot at his residence.
