Surat: The city police on Thursday filed charges of rape against former Gujarat BJP vice president and Abadasa MLA Jayanti Bhanushali after a 21-year old lady had written to the Surat Police accusing Bhanushali of rape on her over a long period of time. The complaint was registered with Sarthana Police station and Deputy Police Commissioner of Surat Leena Patil will be investigating this case.

The victim had sent a written complaint to the Surat Police last week accusing Bhanushali of having raped her in different locations of Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad under the pretext of getting her an admission in a designing course. The victim had suspiciously gone missing after her complaint headlines. Soon, journalists and Congress workers rushed to the commissioner’s office. The victim is said to have arrived in a car on Thursday afternoon at the Surat Police Commissioner’s office.

Sensing the situation, the cops got into the victim's car and took her to the crime branch office where her statement was recorded and a complaint was registered against Jayanti Bhanushali of rape.
