New Delhi :
The Delhi police officials on Tuesday arrested a woman who allegedly honey-trapped and blackmailed Valsad BJP MP KC Patel from her residence in Ghaziabad.
Patel had filed a police complaint last week claiming that he had been drugged by the woman who had taken objectionable videos and photographs of him.
The woman had approached a city court claiming that the police had not acted on her rape complaint against the lawmaker.
“The woman is being questioned. She has claimed that she had made the CD since the MP had been sexually assaulting her and threatening her with dire consequences,” police sources said.
