New Delhi: A 34-year-old Kerala woman who was demanded for sexual gratification in place for bribery by some officials took her fight to the public as she sat outside the Kerala Secretariat at Thiruvananthapuram.
Krishnavani alleged that some officials in the Chirayankeezhu village had forged fake documents to forcefully grab her land. When she objected to this development to the officials, they demanded sexual favours from her to settle the issue.
Krishnavani, sitting outside the Kerala Secratariat, placed a box in front of her on which she wrote “Please give me money to pay off officials who wanted sexual favours as bribe.”
“We bought the land from one Sreedharan, but Jayakumar claimed that we had encroached on his land. To back his claims, he even submitted a receipt for tax he allegedly paid on our land. The officials at the village office created documents showing him as the owner of the land,” Krishnavani said.
“Once an officer at the village office asked for a kiss and said that I should pay him a visit when he is alone at home. This open protest is my answer to him,” she said.
She further stated that in the coming days, she will intensify her protest.
