Initial Mewaram Jain Story:
In early January 2024, allegedly obscene videos purportedly featuring former Barmer MLA Mewaram Jain surfaced on social media, causing widespread outrage.
Days prior, a woman had filed a gang rape complaint against Jain in Jodhpur, alleging he used his political influence to suppress her accusations.
The surfacing of the videos led to Jain’s suspension from the Congress party and sparked calls for a thorough investigation.
Unfolding the Plot:
Amidst public pressure, five individuals were arrested in connection with the video. While their identities and specific roles remain unclear, reports suggest they might be linked to either the filming or dissemination of the video.
However, a crucial twist emerged: the woman who filed the rape complaint was earlier arrested in a 2018 blackmail case filed by Jain. This accusation further complicated the narrative and raised questions about motives and timelines.
Additionally, some reports claim the video could be several years old, adding another layer of uncertainty to the already murky situation.
