Samrite had also filed a habeas corpus petition accusing Rahul of raping a girl from Amethi and also alleging that he held the victim and her parents in detention since 2007.

Dismissing the former MLA's charge, the High Court ordered a CBI probe against the petitioner, Kishor Samrite and websites that had reported the incident and others who had plotted the conspiracy against Rahul.
