Sex CD scandal: Woman files plaint against Ramesh Jarkiholi through advocate | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: The sex CD scandal took another turn on Friday as the 25-year-old woman featuring in the purported video lodged a police complaint against former minister Ramesh Jarkiholi, alleging that she was sexually exploited with the lure of a government job. The woman also alleged that she and her family members were facing threats to their lives.
The woman sent a two-page letter, written in Kannada, through her advocate KN Jagadish to the Cubbon Park police station. Based on the complaint, police registered an FIR (first information report) against Jarkiholi under IPC sections 376C (related to taking advantage of official position and inducing or seducing any woman to have sexual intercourse, not amounting to the offence of rape), 354A (sexual harassment), 417 (cheating), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation), and section 67(A) of the Information Technology Act.
This is the second FIR being registered in the case. On March 13, Jarkiholi filed a complaint against unidentified miscreants, accusing them of framing him by creating a fake CD and blackmailing him.
In yet another twist to the sex CD scandal, the woman, through her advocate, filed a complaint in Cubbon Park police station on Friday.
The girl’s statement from the FIR read: “I had met Ramesh Jarkiholi for a documentary. At that time, he promised a government job and spoke with concern. He asked me to cooperate in all ways with him for the job, I trusted him. From Karnataka Bhavan in Delhi he made a video call to me and directed me to undress, I did. He later invited me to his apartment stating he wanted to discuss about my job. There he developed physical contact with me. Later, he abused me for asking (for) the job…I seek legal action against him for sexually exploiting me…”
