MP finance Minister Raghavji resigned earlier today after being accused of sodomizing his domestic help. The victim claims that there were two other men as well who sodomized him. Allegedly he has handed over a CD with evidence to the police, which was recorded by a third man who present at the time this took place. A case against the minister has not been filed as yet, however Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has received the resignation letter and passed it on to state Governor Ram Naresh Yadav for acceptance.
Raghavji has not yet been available to comment on the situation.
