False affidavit case: Nampally court issues bailable warrant against BJPs Jambagh corporator

Hyderabad: A local court at Nampally on Wednesday issued a bailable arrest warrant against BJP Jambagh division corporator Rakesh Jaiswal after he failed to appear before the court in a false affidavit case.

Rakesh Jaiswal had allegedly suppressed and concealed real facts and submitted a False Affidavit on Oath, before the Returning Officer Ward-77 at Abids. He had stated that he has got two kids whereas, in reality, he has got three making him ineligible to contest the GHMC election as per the law.

The FIR was filed in Abids police station based on the complaint from All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen leader and former Corporator from Jambagh J Ravindra. Ravindra lost to BJP leader by 182 votes.

In the FIR, the complainant alleged that Jambagh's newly elected corporator has submitted a "false affidavit" suppressing vital facts about the number of kids.

"Rakesh Jaiswal has shown that he has two children. But in reality, he has got 3 children," said J Ravindra in his complaint.

Earlier the complainant had moved to the election tribunal challenging the election of Rakesh Jaiswal. He alleged that Jaiswal has violated the two-child norm. He said it is a violation of Section 21 B of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation Act.

Abids police had registered a case against Rakesh Jaiswal under section 199 (False statement made in declaration which is by law receivable as evidence) of IPC. In early June this year, the police had filed a charge sheet against the BJP corporator.

Since Rakesh Jaiswal has failed to appear before the court, the Magistrate issued a "bailable arrest warrant" to secure his presence.

The case has been posted for another hearing on February 22, 2022.
