Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Bahujan Samaj Party President Mayawati on Friday expelled legislator Shahnawaz Rana from her party for an alleged attempt to rape two women. A first information report (FIR) was lodged with the Muzaffarnagar police on Thursday by a man named Varun Jain, who alleged that Rana had attempted to rape two women, state Principal Home Secretary Kunwar Fateh Bahadur said.
“No sooner than the preliminary investigation confirmed that the legislator was party to the incident, the Chief Minister took serious note of the matter and has now ordered his expulsion from the party,” he said.
Mayawati has also issued stern directives for Rana’s total boycott from all party functions with immediate effect, Bahadur added. “The Chief Minister’s action was aimed at making it loud and clear that she would not tolerate any nonsense from anyone, irrespective of his association or position in the ruling party,” Bahadur pointed out. “Since two policemen were also found to have sided with the legislator, they have also been placed under suspension,” he said.
