India famous leaders from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress party among others are reportedly involved in India’s ‘biggest’ ever ‘quid pro quo sex scandal’.
“It could turn out to be the biggest ever quid pro quo sex scandal in the country as the investigation progresses,” said an officer.
“There are inputs that the check-in registers of the club are missing and efforts are on to manipulate other records that have images of these girls. This includes CCTV cameras,” an officer said.
A daunting task lies ahead for the Indian Police as they are trying to stop these pictures and videos from falling into the wrong hands.
“The basic line of investigation should be the quid pro quo deals. The officers concerned should be charged under Prevention of Corruption Act,” said an officer and added that seeking and accepting sexual favours is considered a bribe under the new anti-corruption law, and it carries a seven-year jail.
India’s Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Act, 2018, incorporates the umbrella term ‘undue advantage’, which means any gratification other than legal remuneration and includes expensive dub memberships and hospitality, said the officer, adding the word ‘gratification’ is not limited to money.
“Once investigations are done, honey-trapped government officials can be booked for seeking and accepting sexual favours,” he further said.
