Days after, upcoming playback singer Renu Sharma levelled rape allegations against NCP leader Dhananjay Panditrao Munde, opposition and BJP leader, MLA Krishna Hegde came out with a claim that Mr Munde’s accuser had tried luring into a relationship him since 2010 as well. Former Congress MLA Krishna Hegde, who joined the BJP four years ago, has claimed the woman who has accused Mr Munde of raping her in 2016 had been harassing him till 2015, trying to get him into a relationship.
“The woman used to call and say we are in a relationship, but I kept avoiding her. It started in 2010 and continued till 2015. I blocked her many times, but then she used to call me from another number. I didn’t know her intention, so I did some background check and found out things were not very right. But didn’t want to come out and say anything about a woman, as it also didn’t concern me because I never met her. But when this episode of Mr Munde came to the fore, I realised she is a serial offender. I felt this needs to be stopped and so registered an official police complaint,” Hegde said.
Renu Sharma has now refuted the allegations on her Twitter handle. She said, “I was never involved in any honey trap activity as alleged. Infact Mr. Krishna Hegde started the conversation with me. He met me at the birthday party of Mr. Pratap SirNaik (MLA). The allegations made by Mr. Krishna Hedge is false, bogus and baseless. ”Another leader Manish Dhuri from Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) also alleged the woman tried to honeytrap him by calling him to her flat in Andheri a few years ago. He felt that someone else was also present at the flat, and left her house. Dhuri also filed a complaint with the Amboli police.
This is motivated action of Mr. Dhananjay Munde after my complaint. I was never involved in any honey trap activity as alleged. Infact Mr.krishna Hegde started the conversation with me. He met me in birthday party of Mr. Pratap SirNaik(MLA).— renu sharma (@renusharma018) January 14, 2021
The allegations made by Mr. Krishna Hedge is false bogus and baseless. He is trying to tarnish my image and defame me in the society and also trying distract me from filing the FIR against Mr. Munde this is counter attack on me since I am filing FIR against Mr. Munde.— renu sharma (@renusharma018) January 14, 2021
