After a series of video statements, an unauthenticated letter surfaced in the early hours on Monday stated to be written by the woman in the CD with former BJP minister Ramesh Jarkiholi to the Chief Justice of the Karnataka High Court.
In a three-page letter dated March 28, the woman requested the Chief Justice to supervise the investigation of the matter personally and direct the state government to provide her protection and ensure her justice.
In the letter, the woman claimed she was a rape victim and said she had filed a complaint against Ramesh Jarkiholi with Cubbon Park police.
Jarkiholi is a “highly influential person and has already threatened me in public of going to any extent against him”.
“I have already expressed my serious apprehension that there is a threat to myself and my parents from Ramesh Jarkiholi and I have requested the Special Investigation Team (SIT) to provide security for myself and my parents.
“Despite this, SIT has not given any protection to myself and my parents so far in collusion with Ramesh Jarkiholi,” she stated.
The woman further alleged that she had learned from the media that Ramesh has already wielded his influence through SIT and caused a “serious threat” to her parents, using criminal force to prevent her from appearing before the magistrate and preventing her from making any statements against him.
Former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has questioned the BJP-led government in the state after news emerged that the woman seen in the sex-for-jobs tape with BJP leader Ramesh Jarkiholi, wrote to the Karnataka High Court Chief Justice.
