Last updated on October 19, 2019

The daughter of a former BJP MLA from Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh has complained to authorities that she was being granted”shots” by her loved ones to induce her to wed a legislator’s son, authorities said on Saturday.

A local news station played with a movie clip showing Bharti speaking about the alleged agony.

“My family needs me to get married into a MLA’s son from my desire. I’m being drugged with shots,” she maintained.

She proceeded to add that she had been”not using a Christian, Muslim” and she was”happy and safe” after”leaving the house in my wish”.

“I’m emotionally sound. My family has accumulated fudged files regarding my health since they are powerful. I’m being bothered deliberately. I don’t need to come home,” she explained at the clip, adding that a cousin had been beating up her amid”10 decades of misery”.

She stated she’d left house”10-20 days” earlier.

Bharti’s counselor Ankit Saxena told PTI that she’s approached Madhya Pradesh High Court in Jabalpur looking for police protection.

Saxena said he’d listed the movie Bharti on her petition.

Ex-MLA Singh couldn’t be contacted for his comments.
