My opponents have played the very dirty game on me keeping in the mind the forthcoming assembly election. They have falsely implicated me into this case with the motive of keeping me away from my people.
I am completely innocent and this is nothing but a political conspiracy against me.
That girl was working at my shop since 16th February and in a way to help her I provided her an employment. She was introduced to me in the month of February by her mother.
After her mother requested me, I told my manager of Miramar store to give her a job at the shop.
She started working at my Miramar shop from 16th February 2016 as a sales girl.
But within just two days on the 18th February, she robbed 3000 rupees from the cash counter and I immediately sacked her from the job.
The girl had sent SMS to two of her friends in which she had confessed to stealing the money from the shop.
She had vowed to teach me a lesson for removing her from the job.
According to girl’s statement, she claims to have been raped on 6th and 8th March but on both the days I was busy with the CCP election work.
According to me, this girl has been instigated by my political rivals to implicate me in this false case.
There is no substance in the allegation of drugging and raping this girl and it is completely false and malicious.
The investigation agency is also trying to incriminate me into this case.
The hearing on the application filed by Babush will on Monday at the children’s court. Meanwhile, the ossification report of the victim girl has been declared by the GMC doctors and it has been proved that the girl is minor. The test was done to ascertain her real age since both the certificates submitted by her were having wrong dates mention on it.
According to the sources, the ossification test will be useful for the investigation agency while filing the charge sheet in this case. Babsuh is facing the serious charges of buying a minor girl and sexually exploiting her by giving her sedatives in the soft drink.
