A 23-year-old student who leveled rape allegations against the former Union Minister swami Chinmayanand repudiated her statement in a hearing at a special MP-MLA court in Lucknow on Tuesday. This comes as a giant relief for Chinmayanand who was in remission last year in Sep when the student accused him of sexually exploiting her. He was arrested by SIT and UP police. He was granted bail by the Allahabad high court in Feb this year.
When the law student appeared before the court, she flatly denied all the allegations she had created earlier against swami and turned hostile. The angry prosecution right away appealed to the court to maneuver an application beneath Section 340 of the CrPC (false claim during a case) against that girl, seeking action against her for bearing false witness.
