“Based on the woman’s statement, Rahi was sent to judicial custody under the charges of murder, outraging modesty, house trespass, and the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. The woman had also alleged that she was offered Rs 9 lakh to retract her statement,” the officer said.

The case began on September 5, when the woman said that her landlord had murdered her father. She had further alleged in the FIR that on August 28, the BJP leader had raped her and when her father protested, the accused thrashed him. But in her statement before the magistrate, the woman had retracted all her previous claims.
