Four months after Prince Raj, Lok Janshakti Party MP from Samastipur, filed an FIR against two persons, including a woman, for allegedly demanding Rs 1 crore after threatening to implicate him in a false rape case, the woman has filed a sexual abuse complaint against him. An FIR has not been filed so far, and investigation is underway, police said.
Prince Raj is among the five LJP MPs who have rebelled against Chirag Paswan, his cousin. On Tuesday, Chirag shared a letter written to his uncle and Hajipur MP Pashupati Kumar Paras on March 29, in which he referred to the issue.
The letter, which Chirag tweeted, read (in Hindi): “Sometime back, a woman who had been associated with the party had been blackmailing Prince by making allegations of sexual exploitation against him. I had sought advice on the matter from you, being my elder, but you overlooked this serious matter. After you overlooked it, I had advised Prince to go to the police so that the truth and lies would come out and the guilty could be punished”.
Earlier this week, the five MPs said they had elected Paras as their parliamentary party leader. Prince Raj is the son of Ram Vilas Paswan’s youngest brother Ram Chandra Paswan.
Referring to the issue on Wednesday, Chirag said: “The first time I heard of this was around January 8… I was given a letter written by the alleged victim. They spoke of some things which they said happened to them. The MP they accused, my brother Prince Raj, when I put this to him, he put another version in front of me. His version was completely different… I am no investigating authority, and I suggested that both go to the police.”
