NEW DELHI: Former Madhya Pradesh Finance Minister Raghavji, who has been accused of sodomy by his domestic servant Rajkumar Dangi, was arrested in Bhopal on Tuesday.
“Raghavji has been arrested from a flat in Koh-e-Fiza locality in old city area of Bhopal where he was hiding,’’ said Bhopal Inspector General (IG) Upendra Jain.
The disgraced leader, who had gone missing on Sunday from Vidisha, was inside his flat when the police reached there. But the flat was locked from inside.
When the police knocked it down, Raghavji was inside and taken into custody.
The domestic servant Rajkumar Dangi filed a case against Raghavji last week, alleging that he had been sodomized for three and a half years by the minister on the pretext of getting him a government job.
The job never came and Dangi had no choice but to remain with the minister to be exploited by him.
The case against the minister was filed after Dangi reportedly told his ordeal to another suspended BJP leader Shiv Shankar Pateria who asked him to file a complaint with the police.
The servant has reportedly prepared 22 CDs of his being sodomized by the minister. One CD was prepared on the Rewanchal Express passenger train.
Raghavji, who resigned as minister last week after his exposure, was thrown out of the BJP on Sunday.
