"We demand that a narco test be conducted on my husband and the girl as well as her uncle. This will help in ascertaining the truth and presenting the correct picture. We have full sympathy with the girl, as her modesty was outraged... There are political reasons behind this and my husband has been made a pawn," Sangeeta said."My husband is innocent and it is my request that he should not be called a rapist. He has been in politics for the past 15 years and has been servingthe society and people," she said.
