It is very shameful to tell that a person who fought for freedom for our country has a successor like Rohit Tilak. Yes, the great-grandson of freedom fighter Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Rohit Tilak, who is also a Congress leader, has been arrested by the police for allegedly raping a woman and forcing her into ‘unnatural’ sex.
The woman lodged a complaint against him on Monday night. According to the police officials, both the 40 years old woman and Rohit Tilak knew each other for the last couple of years. The police said in its statement that,
“The complainant alleged that (Rohit) Tilak repeatedly raped her on the pretext of marrying her,”.
As per the reports, charges under various sections of the Indian Penal Code have been slapped against Tilak including charges of rape, unnatural sex, voluntarily causing hurt, insult with an intent to provoke breach of peace and criminal intimidation.
Rohit Tilak is a senior Congress leader and Member of Parliament. He won 2014 Maharashtra Assembly polls from Kasba Peth seat in Pune against BJP’s Girish Bapat.
