The missing student whose father alleged she was sexually harassed by BJP leader Swami Chinmayanand has been located in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh Police said on Friday.

"In Shahjahanpur episode the girl has been located by Shahjahanpur police in Rajasthan along with her friend. Necessary legal action is being taken," UP Police said on its official Twitter handle.

The woman, a student at a college run by Chinmayanand's trust, was missing since August 24, a day after she posted a video on social media, alleging that the former Union minister was harassing and threatening to kill her.

She did not name Chinmayanand in the video but referred to "a senior leader of the sant community".

The politician, who faced similar accusations in 2011 and was booked for raping a woman who stayed at his ashram, disputed the charge.

Earlier, the girl had accused Chinmayanand, director of her college, of threatening to kill her and her family as she has evidence against him. She had also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath for help.

She, through a Facebook live video had said, “I’m (name not revealed) from Shahjahanpur and am pursuing LLM from SS College. A big leader of the saint society, who has destroyed the lives of several girls, has been threatening me with life. I have all the evidences against him. I request Modi ji and Yogi ji to please help me. He has even threatened to kill my family. Only I know what I have been going through. Modi ji please help me, he is a sanyasi and is threatening that the police, DM and everyone else is on his side and no one can harm him. I request you all for justice.”


“When any girl tries to take an action against him, he blatantly threatens them with murder, claiming he has links with all forces of law.”

This girl in the video then goes on to ask for help from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and says she has all the evidences needed to prove all the allegations she is putting forth.

She had been missing since Sunday August 25, reported Dainik Jagran, just after the video got viral and she drew attention of many.

Her father reported this matter to the police, alleging that his daughter was not missing but kidnapped. He has filed written complaint against Chinmayanand, former MoS Home. He has also told the police that his daughter was not the only one who was harassed.
