BJP MLA Ramchandra Baitha’s son Chandan changed his Facebook profile status to “married” and also posted photographs with his spouse, who is the same girl he and his father were accused of abducting on July 29.
According to police investigations, the Facebook update was made on August 1, two days before the girl’s father lodged the abduction complaint against the Kanke MLA and his son on August 3. The same night, the MLA had also lodged a counter-complaint against the girl’s father Shiv Kumar Mahto and six others, accusing them of kidnapping his son.
After the couple made their marital status public, the MLA merely said, “What’s wrong in it if they got married.”Meanwhile, the father of the girl refused to comment.
Kanke police station officer in-charge Saryu Anand said that they would have to “follow procedure” and take the cases to their logical conclusion.
“We will produce the girl in court for her statement. She will also be sent for medical examination,” Anand added.
