Rape accused ex-minister undergoes medical test

Former Rajasthan minister Babulal Nagar, accused of sexually assaulting a woman, underwent medical tests in connection with the case at SMS Hospital here on Saturday, CID-Crime Branch sources said.

Nagar has been evading the medical examination on one pretext or another. A medical board examined him and collected his semen and other samples for forensic tests after he reported at the hospital unescorted by CID-CB sleuths.

Earlier, in the morning, when a state CID-CB team led by Additional SP VK Gaur went to Nagar’s official bungalow at Civil Lines here to take him for the tests, they found the accused absent with his family failing to provide any information about his whereabouts, sources said. Later, in the afternoon, Nagar informed CID-CB  that he would reach the hospital directly for the tests, they added. Police The paid he did so to avoid the media.

Nagar’s son, on September 26, informed CID-CB that his father would report for a medical test on Saturday.  However, the police have not arrested Nagar.

“After the tests, Nagar left hospital on his own. We do not know his whereabouts. Further action would be initiated after the forensic reports in the case are made available,” sources said. The woman has already submitted the clothes she wore on the assault day for tests. Nagar resigned as the minister for dairy, khadi and rural industries following an FIR against him by a woman alleging that he had sexually assaulted her at his official bungalow on September 11 after calling her there on the pretext of the offer of a job.

The 53-year-old politician, however, has denied the charges saying that his rivals were trying to “frame” him ahead of Assembly elections in the state. The state government has recommended a CBI investigation into the allegations.Babulal’a wife, Sunita, has filed a criminal complaint against the victim who has levelled rape charges against her husband.

The complainant has filed an application in the same court and requested for progress report of this case.
