A social activist who had filed a petition in court 11 years back against the present Uttar Pradesh Chief Yogi Adityanath has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman.
Superintendent of Police (City) Vinay Singh said Wednesday the woman was allegedly raped by Pervez Parvaz and another man Mahmood alias Jumman, described as a 'occultist'.
The woman was allegedly raped when she had come to Jumman for treatment of some ailment, the officer said.
Following a medical examination of the victim, the rape has been confirmed, he added.
Parvaj has been pursuing a criminal case in various courts against Adityanath, the then Gorakhpur MP, since 2007. He had accused him of delivering a hate speech.
