Delhi Police Friday filed a charge sheet in a court here against BSP MP Dhananjay Singh for allegedly repeatedly raping a 42-year-old married railway employee for nearly four years.

The charge sheet was filed in a complaint by the woman accusing Singh, the Lok Sabha member from Uttar Pradesh's Jaunpur constituency, of repeatedly raping her.

Singh was charged under various provisions of the Indian Penal Code, including Sections 376 (rape), 377 (unnatural offence), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation).

The charge sheet was filed before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sonu Agnihotri.

Police said Singh had repeatedly raped the woman between July 2005 to March 2009.

According to the complaint filed by the woman, she was allegedly raped several times by Singh at gunpoint and was threatened with dire consequences if she reported the matter, police said.

Police said that the husband of the woman was a businessman and was known to Singh and through him, she had first met Singh in February 2005.

Singh and his wife Jagriti, a dental surgeon at a government hospital, are in jail after they were arrested in November last year in connection with their maid's torture and murder case, in which the charge sheet will be filed Saturday.
