Chinmayanand Case: SIT Chief Says Won't be Swayed by 'Media Trial', Wants People to Show 'Some' Faith
New Delhi: The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing allegations of rape and blackmail against BJP leader Chinmayanand on Wednesday said that it will not be swayed by accusations of trying to shield the former Union Minister.
Addressing a press conference, Naveen Arora, the chief of the SIT, which was set up by the apex court to probe allegations against Chinmayanand, said, 'You should have some faith in the investigation agency. If the probe is going in the wrong direction, the Allahabad High Court is there to monitor us.
The development comes after the 23-year-old law student from Shajahanpur, who has accused Chinmayanand of raping her and physically exploiting her for over a year, questioned why no action has been taken against the 72-year-old BJP leader even after she gave a detailed statement before a magistrate. The girl has also threatened to set herself on fire if Chinmayanand is not arrested.
