Jamshedpur, June 11: State health minister Banna Gupta has removed his personal driver Pradyut Kumar Singh alias Munna Singh after his name cropped up in sexual exploitation and intimidation of a married woman in Kadma for nearly nine years.
The driver has been accused by a woman of Kadma of having sexual relationship with her on the pretext of marriage and also taking away Rs 7 lakh on false assurances. The woman lodged a complaint at the Jamshedpur civil court and the court in turn directed Kadma thana to probe into the incident and lodge an FIR against the driver.
Meanwhile, BJM Mahila Morcha president Manju Singh has demanded that the accused in the sexual exploitation case be arrested immediately.
The woman leader claimed that the driver has sexually explitated a Scheduled Caste woman and threatened to launch an agitation if arrest is not done immediately. She also said that the victim woman has claimed that she was sexually exploited by the driver even in the official house of the state health minister and it is a matter of shame that the minister was not aware that such an act was done right under his nose.
