Vijayawada: Sattenapalli police registered a case against TD councillor B. Manohar of Sattenapalli municipality and started investigating allegations levelled by a woman that he sexually harassed her.
Manohar was elected to the municipality from ward 4. The complainant also submitted a video clip of Manohar forcing her for sexual favours. Sattenapalli Urban inspector V. Mallikarjuna Rao said that the victim lodged a complaint along with video clip as evidence against Manohar. The victim said that the councillor forcibly entered her house and dragged her to the bedroom for sexual favours.
The victim in her complaint said that she had taken a loan of Rs 3 lakh from Manohar and she has so far returned Rs 1.50 lakh to him. However, he started harassing her to pay the remaining amount immediately. When she expressed her inability to clear the loan without being given some time, the councillor demanded sexual favours from her, in lieu of giving her time to clear the loan in instalments.
The victim alleged that Manohar then forcibly entered her house demanding sexual favours but she resisted him and managed to fall victim to his lust.
The entire episode was recorded by the CCTV camera and she submitted the clip as evidence along with her complaint.
