Lok Sabha MP?says honey-trapped by Delhi lawyer, asked to pay Rs 5 crore

New Delhi, May 1
A member of Parliament, KC Patel, has complained to the Delhi Police that he was honey-trapped, filmed and asked to pay up Rs 5 crore by a woman lawyer, who in turn accused the BJP lawmaker of rape.
A case of extortion has been registered against the woman, special commission of police MK Meena said on Monday.
The woman approached police on Thursday with a rape complaint against the Gujarat MP.
The Lok?Sabha MP has denied the charges. “These are all false allegations, I have full faith in law; will cooperate in the investigation,” Patel told news agency ANI.
The woman, a Delhi-based lawyer, sought court’s help after police failed to act on her complaint, sources said. The court on Thursday directed police to file a case and also give reasons for not filing an FIR on her complaint.
Patel was called for recording his statement on Friday.
The investigation opened a can of worms, a police officer said.
“The MP stated that the woman honey-trapped him, clicked his obscene photos and recorded videos and then threatened to implicate him in a rape case if he refused to pay the amount,” the officer said.
The BJP leader alleged the woman was trying to extort money out of him, something she had done to other MPs as well.
The woman had a good network and she used it to approach MPs. An associate also helped her, the
officer said.
