JAIPUR: Rajasthan's Sirohi Municipal Council Chairperson and former Municipal Council Commissioner was booked for a gang rape case that shocked the state. The case is against Municipal Council Chairperson Mahendra Mewada and former Municipal Council Commissioner Mahendra Chaudhary.

Almost 20 women were gang raped after giving fake promises of jobs in Anganwadis(playschool). The incident came to light after one woman complained to the Pali district police saying that the accused had molested her and twenty other women with the promise of employment.

In the complaint, it is also mentioned that the accused filmed the horrific act and demanded Rs 5 lakh from the victim, or else threatened to upload the scenes online.

The complainant and all other women had come to Sirohi months ago for Anganwadi work. The accused had arranged accommodation and food supplies for all the women during their stay in Sirohi. In the complaint, it was alleged that the food was drugged and all women were sexually harassed in their intoxicated state.

Even though the woman filed a complaint, the police showed lax and were hesitant to move ahead with the case. Following this, all eight women filed a petition in the Rajasthan High Court. It was the court that asked to initiate a case.
