JAIPUR: The fight in the family of Rajasthan chief secretary, Om Prakash Meena, has taken a serious turn on Friday with his estranged wife, Geeta Singh, made public the documents to the press detailing the kind of torture she and her daughter, Geetanjali Singh, had to undergo from Meena and his family members. His daughter, in a statement on April 21 this year in the High Court, in support of her mother in a case of violence and cruelty against her by OP Meena, accused her father of sexual harassment.
Geetanjali Singh accused her father as a wife beater and child abuser. Geetanjali who now studies in London said, “My father always treated me as a burden and for every single rupee he spent on me, he has abused me and mistreated me physically. My father molested me when I was 13 years old. I am so ashamed to say that he used to come in to my room and touch me at wrong places. He used to put his hand under my skirt and inside my shirt. My father used to kiss me lips and press my chest against his own many times.” She says she had gone through this obscene treatment for two years not knowing what to do and who to tell except to cry at night.
“My human dignity, self-respect, mind and soul has been scarred for life because to this man,” she alleged. She finally gathered courage and spoke to her mother of the sexual abuse of her father and her mother confronted Meena threatening to report to the police, says his daughter.
Geetanjali alleges that Meena and his family members abused her mother for not giving birth to a son and not giving divorce to him for a second marriage.

It was also alleged that due to the clout he enjoyed in the police and civil administration, the police never bothered to register case and investigate the matter independently. The police had always tried for a compromise and argued in favour of her father, she alleged. Geeta said had sought an appointment with the Prime minister.
Chief secretary, O P Meena speaking to TOI over phone said his wife and daughter had filed many cases against him in courts and at state women’s commission. In two cases they were defeated in courts. He said for the last five to six years they were living separately and his daughter is now living in the UK. These are in public domain and was amused by them going public now.
