Meghna, whistle-blower Prashant Pandey’s wife, was detained on Saturday.

Police Superintendent Indore, East Region, O.P. Tripathi told IANS that Meghna was held from an office near Nehru stadium here. She was carrying Rs.9,96,000.

“Since she could not satisfactorily explain the presence of the huge amount of cash, she was taken to a women’s police station. During enquiry, she could not explain the source and changed her statement a number of times. Police then seized the money and released her,” he added.

The official said the income tax department has been informed about the money seized from her.

Talking to IANS, Pandey said it was nothing but an attempt to harass them. “The money seized by police was withdrawn from a bank for purchasing a house.”

He said the government was harassing them because they had raised the Vyapam issue.

In a shocking incident, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader from Madhya Pradesh asked parents of a minor rape victim to express gratitude to the local MP for visiting them.

Sudarshan Gupta, a BJP legislator, was caught on camera in Indore’s MY Hospital, asking the victim’s kin to thank his party MP Sudhir Gupta for visiting them at the hospital to inquire about the minor girl’s condition. Immediately, the parents of the victim were seen nodding and folding their hands before Sudhir. “Say thank you to the MP (Sudhir Gupta). he has travelled only to meet you (Sansad ji ko dhanyavad boliye, special aapke liye aaye hain)”

The eight-year-old girl was abducted from her school in Hafiz Colony here and allegedly gang-raped at her house in Mandsaur three days ago. The girl’s condition is “continuously improving” and she may be discharged in about two weeks, a senior medical official said on Saturday.
