Police has registered a case against Congress Rajya Sabha MP Shadi Lal Batra at New Delhi’s Tilak Marg police station on a complaint of a woman lawyer who alleged that the MP "sexually assaulted" her.

"The woman, who belongs to Haryana, has accused the MP of raping her. We have registered an FIR," said a senior police officer.

In her complaint, the woman has alleged that Batra had invited her to his residence at Indirapuram, Ghaziabad on September 24 with the promise of a job and raped her.

The woman alleged that the MP had assured her that he would get her a job since he enjoyed a high stature in his party, police said.

She has said that the MP allegedly spiked her drink and then sexually assaulted her, said a police officer.

She has also accused him of "threatening her against reporting the matter to police". Police is currently investigating the matter.
