Police in Rajasthan's Pali have booked a local BJP leader and three others for allegedly raping a woman and molesting her teenage daughter, officials said on Sunday.

The police have conducted a medical examination of the survivors and initiated an investigation.


Circle Officer (Sojat City) Mrityunjay Mishra said a woman lodged a complaint of rape and molestation against Mohanlal Jat and three others, including two women.

Jat is a local level BJP leader.

"She met Jat a month ago regarding a deal for a plot on a residential project," the officer said, citing her complaint.

She alleged that Jat along with one Mahesh Chandak raped her and molested her teenage daughter. Two women were also allegedly involved.
