Shahjahanpur: BJP leader Swami Chinmayanand, accused of rape by a law student, was on Friday arrested and sent in 14 days' judicial custody, and has apparently told the police he was sorry for his behaviour.But the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the case also arrested three other men — all charged with trying to extort money from the former Union minister, and named an unidentified woman as a suspect in the same case.

The student claimed the police are trying to weaken the case against Chinmayanand. SIT chief Inspector General Naveen Arora said the video clipping of the accuser being made to massage Chinmayananda was also shown to him. “When you have come to know everything, I have nothing to say. I accept my crime and I am very sorry for this act,” the BJP leader was quoted as saying, by the SIT chief. But it was not clear if by 'crime,' he was referring to rape or massage.
