Sacked BJP man booked for rape bid

LUCKNOW: A former worker of BJP was accused of attempting to a member of BJP’s woman wing, Mahila Morcha, in Naka Hindola area on Monday. He had been stalking her and sending lewd text messages to her.

The accused, identified as Tushar Sahu of Naka Hindola, had been expelled from the party due to his bad conduct and activities. Despite his expulsion, Sahu continued visiting the party office where he came in with the Mahila Morcha Mandal (Madhya) III member during the Vidhan Sabha elections. Sahu took the woman’s phone number and started sending her messages and proposed to her. The woman ignored the messages and blocked his number. He then started following her on Facebook and started posting suggestive messages.

“He started sending me messages on WhatsApp through other numbers. He turned violent when I chided him for his conduct and warned him of lodging a compolaint with police. He started keeping a close tab on my movement, talked to my colleagues and used to reach the place I had to visit like party functions in Bazaarkhala, Naka, Mawaiyya and other places,” the victim alleged in her complaint to police.

“On Sunday night, Sahu caught my hand when I was going on Gurudwara road in Naka Hindola area and he dragged me behind a pan kiosk where he tried to force himself upon me,” the victim told Naka police.

SHO Naka Hindola Parshuram Singh said that a case has been registered against Sahu for attempt to rape, sexual harassment, stalking woman and causing hurt. Sahu was currently absconding.
