The supposed ‘victim’ of attempted rape case against Jacob Khaling, political secretary to Sikkim chief minister, has denied filing of any case against him. 

The ‘victim’ said that accusations against Khaling, which were widely reported as ‘false’ and ‘fabricated’. 

Notably, Sikkim Nagarik Samaj (SNS), a civil society organisation in the Himalayan state on Saturday had claimed that an FIR was filed by the victim via post before East Sikkim SP on July 9. 

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”. 

However, the ‘victim’ claimed that she did not file any case against the political secretary to Sikkim chief minister. 

She further filed a counter FIR against SNS pressing defamation amongst other charges. 

Amidst the controversy, on August 19, the ‘victim’ was appointed as a member of the Sikkim State Commission for Women.
