Viral video: Goa minister Vijai Sardesai accused of outraging modesty of a woman
Goa’s leading NGO Savera has filed police complaint against Agriculture Minister Vijai Sardesai after his video of argument with a fisher woman went viral
Goa’s leading NGO Savera has filed a police complaint against Agriculture Minister Vijai Sardesai after his video of an argument with a local fisherwoman went viral. Sardesai on the other hand has filed complaint with Cyber Crime Cell against unknown people for doctoring his video and presenting it maliciously.
The complaint was on Wednesday filed by Savera with Women’s Police Station in Panaji accusing him of outraging the modesty of the fisherwoman and insulting her and Goans.
"In the video that has gone viral on social media, Vijai Sardesai is making vulgar action while talking to a woman, which results in outraging her modesty and insulting her and the Goans," the complaint filed by Savera chief Tara Kerkar says.
"Sardesai is a public servant and this kind of behaviour in public is highly condemnable," it says.
Sardesai’s Goa Forward Party says video ‘doctored
Goa Forward Party vice president Durgadas Kamat later filed a complaint with Cyber Crime in which he alleged that the video was shot and circulated just to defame the minister and stop him from undertaking any development work. Sardesai is the President of GFP.
"The video has been doctored. We are ready to provide the viral video which has come to us through different sources and the mobile numbers which have circulated the edited malicious clips," he said.
