A Jammu girl has accused a local BJP leader, Rinku Chauhan, of sexually harassing her for nearly three years inside an Iskcon temple. The 20-year-old victim has shared her ordeal for the first time after having exhausted all her options to get reprieve from Chauhan’s continuous harassment.
According to the girl, Chauhan began to sexually harass her when she first started visiting the local Iskcon temple in Jammu’s Muthi area in 2016. She met Chauhan, who was also a part of the temple administration. The girl alleged that Chauhan began to harass her sexually both inside and outside the temple and even resorted to stalking.
The BJP leader allegedly threatened her of dire consequences when she protested his sexual advancements. He, according to the girl, often flaunted his position as a BJP leader to claim that no action could ever be taken against him. The girl said that she stopped serving at the temple for many months to avoid this alleged predator.…
