SHAHJAHANPUR — The law student who had accused former Union minister Chinmayanand of sexual exploitation has taken admission for the Masters of Law (LLM) course in Bareilly University and completed all formalities on Friday under Police security, officials said.

“The girl was brought under police security. At around 9 am, she completed filling various forms including that of examination and library, thereby completing all the admission procedures. The admission fee has also been deposited,” Amit Singh, the head of the law department at Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Rohilkhand University said, according to PTI report.

Earlier in the day, the student was taken to Bareilly by the police for admission following the orders of a court.

The father of the girl informed that on Thursday, an application was submitted in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Omveer Singh, which asked the girl to be admitted in the LLM course at a Bareilly college.

“On the orders of the CJM, a police team took the girl under security cover to Bareilly college.” Superintendent of Police S Chinappa said. Jailor Rajesh Kumar Rai said the girl was taken at around 7 am.

Former Union Minister and BJP leader Chinmayanand is accused of sexually exploiting a woman student of a law college run by his society.

He is lodged in jail following his arrest in a case registered against him under section 376C of the IPC, an offence pertaining to the abuse of one’s position to “induce or seduce” a woman to have “sexual intercourse not amounting to the offence of rape”.

Chinmayanand also faces charges of stalking under section 354 D, wrongful confinement under section 342 and criminal intimidation under section 506 of the IPC.

On October 16, a magisterial court prosecuting Chinmayanand, adjourned the hearing of the case to October 30.

The court deferred the hearing after briefly taking it up through video conferencing.

On September 25, the law student who has accused Chinmayanand of sexual exploitation was arrested on charges of extortion.
