Lucknow, Dec 31: It was a queer case of the victim being victimised. A minor Dalit girl was allegedly kidnapped and raped by a BSP MLA. That's not all, as if adding to insult to injury, the rape victim was accused of stealing cash and clothes and put behind bars by the very people who perpetrated such heinous crime on the under-aged girl.

The rape accused is an MLA from Banda in Uttar Pradesh, Purshottam Narain Dwivedi. He apparently accused the girl of dire consequences if she made his deeds public. "I was severally beaten by the MLA"s goons when I threatened to expose his deeds. He also said that I would rot in the jail if I exposed him," the minor girl was quoted as saying.

Dwivedi has dismissed all allegations against him and countered his stand by falsely implicating the girl on theft charges.

Women activists have taken up the cause and has started an indefinite hunger strike in front of the police station. "The MLA must be arrested forthwith and proceeded against," said Devmala Kushwaha, one of the activists.
