Agra: The Taj city, in a recent incident, witnessed corrupt face of politicians, who in the name of protest took money from the family of a gang rape victim.

The victim's father claimed that Premchand Kushwaha, a Bhartiya Janta Party leader along with another person named Haribabu Kushwaha, collected Rs 29,000 for arranging a protest march for his daughter who committed suicide after being brutalised by three unknown men.

The incident:

  • The incident took place in Vinayaknagar area of the city.
  • Daughter of a local resident Ramesh (name changed) was brutalised by three men and committed suicide thereafter.
  • Agra police took two convicts into custody but the third one succeeded to run away.

Family trapped by politicians:

  • Victim's father claimed that he gave the money to Haribabu Kushwaha who said that they will protest to get justice for his daughter.
  • He said that they demanded for Rs 35,000. Ramesh gave Rs 29,000 to the politician.
  • The leader told the victim's father that he will ask protesters from Fatehpur Sikri, Kheragadh, Fatehbad and other villages to join them for the protest rally.
  • Ramesh stated that when nothing was being done he asked the leaders to return him the money refused to do so and threatened to kill him.
  • Ramesh said, "They took my wife's and my signature on a ten rupees stamp paper and our passport size photographs."
  • When the girl's father asked the leaders about the money and the protest they threatened to kill him and to project him in a false case.
  • Newztrack.com tried to reach Premchand Kushwaha but no response came from the BJP leader.
