Bhopal, July 9: BJP leader -- Raghavji has been arrested over the sex scandal which forced him to resign as the Finance Minister of Madhya Pradesh. The state police arrested the 79-year-old on Tuesday, July 9.
Earlier it was reported Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan asked Raghavji to resign from his post over the sodomy charges hurled against him by his domestic help.
A police complaint was filed against the former minister. The complainant in the FIR said Raghavjihad sodomised him on the pretext of giving permanent government job. Two other aides of the former minister too have been accused of sexually harassing the victim.
The victim submitted a CD as evidence against the accused. The CD was shot by another domestic help who was working at the residence of the former minister. Raghavji had been the finance minister of the state for the last nine years.
According to Raghavji, the man who has accused him of sexual exploitation worked part-time for him, occasionally massaged the minister's arms and legs, and had quit a month ago.
Earlier BJP suspended its senior leader Shiv Shankar Pateria from the primary membership of the party. Pateria invited wrath of the party leaders following his comment saying that he had a role in "exposing" the alleged immoral acts of Ragahvji.
