BSP MPs accused in human trafficking case appear before police

Two Members of Parliament accused in the human trafficking case appeared before the Crime Branch of the Delhi Police for questioning here on Monday.

New Delhi, May 14 : Two Members of Parliament accused in the human trafficking case appeared before the Crime Branch of the Delhi Police for questioning here on Monday.

The names of the two MPs- Ashok Kumar Rawat and Mitrasen Yadav - both of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) figured during the investigations that followed BJP MP Babubhai Katara's arrest.

Police had questioned four more MP's in a widening probe into an alleged immigration racket, unearthed after a BJP MP Babubhai Katara was arrested at the International airport at Delhi, trying to smuggle a woman and a boy to Canada using his wife and son's passport.

Five others, including two travel agents, have since been arrested in what police suspects to be an illegal immigration racket that probably involves more legislators.

"Basically Rawat was called as a witness, and he was deposing just as a witness," said Harjot Singh, Rawat's lawyer.

However, the police refused to divulge any details related to their appearance.

"With response to the notices that we had served to them, Ashok Kumar Rawat and Mitrasen Yadav have come here for investigations today. We have spoken to them at length and further investigations are going on...," said A.S.Cheema, Additional Commissioner of Police, Crime Branch.

Of the four MP's accused in the case, three are from the BSP, which largely represents the Dalits or the former "untouchable" castes, while the fourth belongs to the BJP.

Katara, earlier a BJP member, was sacked from the party after he was arrested in the case. Police have said they suspect he may have smuggled people to Britain and North America in the past.
