Goa Pradesh Mahila Congress state secretary, Diya Shetkar has alleged on Sunday that supporters of a BJP leader Subhash Shirodkar have threatened her with gang rape if she campaigns against the BJP leader.

Diya Shetkar in her police complaint said that she had received a call on Sunday morning. The person claimed to be Shirodkar’s supporter. The unknown caller also allegedly used abusive and vulgar language while threatening her with gang rape.

Shetkar said she was also asked not to visit BJP leader’s constituency. "To harass a woman, Shirodkar's supporters have stooped so low to threaten me of gang rape," she said to news agency ANI.


Diya Shetkar has appealed to the police to take the matter very seriously. A complaint has been registered against an unknown person.

In October, Subhash Shirodkar had joined the BJP after stepping down as the Congress lawmaker for Siroda in the Goa Legislative Assembly. Shetkar, who is also a lawyer, said that she had earlier campaigned against him. Shirodkar has not responded to the allegations yet.
