Chandigarh, November 16


Industrialist Manjit Singh Arora, an accused in a four-year-old rape case, today filed an amended petition in the Punjab and Haryana High Court, alleging that two Panchkula residents had demanded a bribe of Rs 50 lakh from him on behalf of a district court judge for exonerating him from the case.

The case is pending in the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Najar Singh and slated for hearing on November 18.

The industrialist has also filed a complaint with the District and Sessions Judge for transferring the case to another court. District and Session Judge SK Aggarwal confirmed that his office had received a copy of the complaint. Najar Singh was not available for comments at his Sector 16 residence. His son, Mohit Singh, said his father did not want to comment. However, in a section of the media, the judge has been quoted saying that the complainant was levelling the allegation to escape punishment.

Addressing a press conference here today, Manjit Singh said he has also filed a complaint with the CBI.

In his petition filed in the High Court, which will come up for hearing on November 25, he demanded a stay on the proceedings of the case in Najar Singh's court, besides transferring of his case to the court of another judge.

He claimed that he had already paid Rs 25 lakh as part of the bribe money to one Dr Naresh Mittal — Rs 15 lakh on October 16 and Rs 10 lakh to his wife on October 29. He also named one Balbir Chaudhary in his petition.

In his petition Manjit Singh Arora stated that he had video and audio recording of his conversation with Dr Naresh Mittal when he gave him the money. He said the case was adjourned in the district court to October 31 and then on November 7 and further to November 12, but even then he was continuously being threatened to pay the remaining amount. Under pressure, the petitioner moved the Punjab and Haryana on November 7.

The amended petition was filed today. On November 12 during the hearing of the case in the district court, he moved an application in the court of Najar Singh to adjourn the case on the ground that his petition was pending in the High Court. The case then adjourned to November 18. 

The case

The UT police arrested Manjit Singh Arora on the charges of repeatedly raping his 14-year-old maidservant in Chandigarh and Mumbai in January 2010. In August 2010, the victim and her mother turned hostile. The final arguments of the case were fixed on August 26, 2013, in the court of Additional Session Judge RK Yadav, but he was replaced by Najar Singh before this.
