A rape case was filed against former Uttarakhand minister Harak Singh Rawat late Friday night on a complaint lodged by a 32-year-old woman. The case against Rawat was lodged at Safdarjung police station in South Delhi. The victim has alleged that the former minister raped her at his Green Park residence, said a senior police officer.
Harak Singh was among the Congress leaders who had rebelled against Harish Rawat’s government in Uttarakhand and had joined the BJP in May 2016 along with several party MLAs.
In 2014, a molestation case was filed against the former agriculture minister in Delhi. The woman had alleged that Rawat had molested her at his residence in September when she was there to meet him for a job.
