Chargesheet filed against Congress MLA in rape case

A chargesheet has been filed in a Kerala court against a Congress MLA in connection with the alleged rape of a 51-year-old woman.

M. Vincent, a first-time member of the state Assembly, was arrested in July on charges of raping, making threatening calls to the woman and abetting her attempt to commit suicide.

The over-1,000-page chargesheet was filed by the Neyyattinkara deputy superintendent of police before a judicial magistrate’s court near Thiruvananthapuram, police sources said.

The court has asked Vincent to appear before it on January 15, when the charges will be read out to him.

The victim had lodged a police complaint, alleging that the Congress MLA had raped her twice.

She had also attempted to end her life.

A case was registered against the legislator for alleged rape, stalking and abetment of suicide on July 22.
