An attempted rape case has been registered against Sikkim chief minister’s political secretary Jacob Khaling.
This was informed by Sikkim Nagarik Samaj (SNS), a civil society organisation in the Himalayan state on Saturday.
SNS said that the FIR was lodged before SP of East Sikkim district via post after the local police allegedly ‘failed’ to register a case against Khaling.
The civil society organisation has demanded Sikkim chief minister PS Tamang to dismiss Khaling as his political secretary for a “fair investigation”.
“Serious allegations have been levelled against Jacob Khaling. So, we want him (Khaling) to be removed from all government posts that he is currently holding for the sake of a fair investigation,” the SNS said.
Meanwhile, Jacob Khaling has said that the case lodged against him is politically motivated.
Khaling said that the “opposition after failing politically, now has started to attack people from the government personally with baseless allegations”.
