    "We announced a reward of Rs 10,000 against Katare last night as he is absconding and is not appearing before the police despite summons," Bhopal Superintendent of Police (SP-South) Rahul Kumar Lodha said today.

Singh is untraceable since January 24 when a 21-year-old journalism student was arrested for allegedly trying to extort money from Katare after threatening to file a rape case against the MLA.

    The student, while in jail, had complained against Katare alleging that he had raped her several times following which police took a case of rape and abduction against the Congress MLA on February 2. Police had also constituted a nine-member special investigation team (SIT) to probe the allegations against the MLA.

    Katare, in his defence, had earlier said that the journalism student had met him a couple of times and, along with her aide Singh, had tried to extort money. Police had arrested the woman when she came to collect Rs 5 lakh as part of a "settlement" with the MLA. She was granted bail on February 5, officials said.
