Jaipur, Oct 20: A CBI team in Jaipur Sunday recorded statements of staff members at a government bungalow where Rajasthan ex-minister Babulal Nagar was alleged to have raped a woman.
A case of rape was registered Sep 17 against the then minister of state for dairy and rural industries Nagar, who had to resign.
“A CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) team quizzed a caretaker and her husband deputed at the bungalow when the alleged rape took place. Some other staff members were also interrogated,” said a source.
The officials wanted to ascertain the presence of the former minister at his residence when the alleged rape took place Sep 11.
The CBI will now serve notice to Nagar requiring him to appear before the agency for interrogation, the source said.
The Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government Sep 21 recommended a CBI probe against Nagar.
The victim’s statement has been recorded before a magistrate in which she alleged Nagar’s relatives were threatening her and offering her money to withdraw the case.
Nagar represents the Dudu assembly constituency in Ajmer district.
