The police have also accused Madhavan of “criminal intimidation” in addition to rape.

Finally speaking out about the rape allegations brought against him, Sonia Gandhi’s assistant PP Madhavan claimed that all accusations against him were false and that the complaint was manufactured to avenge him and his party politically.

In a formal statement, Madhavan claimed that he had the proof to show and prove that the complaint was filed with premeditation in order to settle a personal score with a political rival and that the current claim was without foundation.

He stated that the police were looking into the accusations made against a 71-year-old man who serves as a senior political figure’s personal secretary.

Even though the DCP omitted the political figure’s name, Delhi Police authorities claimed Madhavan was the target of the accusations.

The woman claimed in the FIR that she had poor financial standing and went to the Congress office to obtain Madhavan’s phone number.
