Prince Raj, nephew of the late Ram Vilas Paswan and cousin of Chirag Paswan, a Member of Parliament from Samastipur in Bihar, has been accused of raping a party worker.
Prince Raj, the nephew of the late Ram Vilas Paswan and cousin of Chirag Paswan, is a Member of Parliament from Samastipur in Bihar.
The counsel appearing for Raj, a MP from Samastipur in Bihar, told the court that the alleged victim and her male friend were extorting money and blackmailing his client since 2020.
The Delhi Police had opposed the plea and sought his custodial interrogation alleging that video clips have objectionable content as claimed by the victim.
Police submitted before special judge MK Nagpal that it needed Raj's custody to recover the alleged video clips having objectionable content as claimed by the complainant.
'The court's direction came on September 9 and a case has been registered under relevant sections at the Connaught Place Police Station,' the officer said.
The complaint came hours after Chirag had mentioned a complaint of sexual misconduct against Prince.
