Former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Swami Chinmayanand accused of rape by the 23-year old law student was arrested by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Uttar Pradesh from his residence in Shahjahanpur on Friday.
Rape-charged Chinmayanand has been sent to 14 days judicial custody.
The UP police said, Chinmayanand was picked up from his house around 9 AM and sent for medical examination to the district hospital.
72-year old Chinmayanand’s arrest came 4 days after the law student retrieved her statement before a magistrate in Shahjahanpur.
The 23-year law student had been missing since August 23 from the college run by Chinmayanand’s trust. She was found by UP cops a week after in Rajasthan.
