He said Chinmayananad raped his daughter after blackmailing her with the videos. His daughter then decided to record the BJP leader using a hidden camera.
A friend of the complainant also spoke in her support, confirming the charges pressed against the former MP. “She studied with me in the same college and had told me about the problems she was facing.
She told me that she was lured by being offered free food and other privileges in the hostel but was unaware of what was in store for her,” said the friend.
Meanwhile, according to sources, Chinmayanand has been left alone by the ‘sant samaj’. The saints’ community believes that he should go through the legal procedure to prove his innocence.
