Lucknow, Jan 12: The Uttar Pradesh government has decided to arrest BSP MLA, Purshottam Dwivedi, for allegedly raping a 17-year-old Dalit girl. The investigating agency CB-CID found that MLA, who rejected the allegations, raped her and falsely accused theft charges on the victim.

The Uttar Pradesh government had been in a tizzy over public outcry from various political groups over the MLAs misdemeanor. Finally, the Mayawati government appointed CB-CID for the investigation and brought out the truth. Sources reported that police may arrest Purshottam, who is under suspension, shortly.

Soon after the case popped up, MLA accused the victim of stealing clothes and jewelery from his house. He also accused the girl with stealing his pistol and Rs 5000.
