After a video purportedly showing senior BJP leader Parbatbhai Patel in a compromising position with a woman went viral on social media, his son Shailesh Patel alleged that it was a conspiracy to defame his father and extort money. He, accordingly, lodged a police complaint against two people.

The police registered an FIR and detained the two accused, including local Aam Aadmi Party leader Madhabhai Patel. The other accused has been identified as Mukesh Rajput.

The case against them has been filed under sections 389 (extortion), 500 (defamation), criminal conspiracy (120-B) of the Indian Penal Code and under relevant sections of the IT Act.

Parbatbhai Patel, Lok Sabha Member of Parliament from Gujarat’s Banaskantha, has maintained that the video being circulated has been morphed. He said his face has been superimposed onto the body of the man in the video.

The police have said it will be sent for forensic analysis to verify its authenticity.

HOW DID THE VIDEO GO VIRAL?

Earlier, AAP leader Madhabhai Patel posted a photograph on Facebook in which the face of the individual was not visible. He claimed that he would post a sex video of a top politician of Banaskantha on August 15.

When this post went viral, 72-year-old BJP leader Parbatbhai Patel told the media, “I have never done anything bad in my life. It may be that my photos have been edited and morphed.”

Even after this, Madhabhai Patel maintained that he would post the full video on social media on August 15. But before that day could come, a sex video purportedly of Parbatbhai Patel emerged on the internet on Tuesday.

The MP’s son Shailesh has said on the matter, “My father is innocent. This is a conspiracy to defame him and extort money from us. The accused had earlier demanded money in exchange for not releasing the video.”
