Mumbai: Bharatiya Janata Party corporator Daya Gaikwad has been booked for allegedly raping a 27-year-old Thane woman.

The woman told the news agency ANI that Gaikwad had raped her at NCP Women's Wing chief Kalyan Ashwini Dhumal's residence.

A case has been registered under IPC sections 376, 323, 504, and 506.

A Times of India report published on Monday said the woman had accused Gaikwad of hiding the fact that he had a wife and promising to wed her.

She alleged that Gaikwad had filmed the act with help from Dhumal and her husband, and that he was using the video to threaten her, the report said.

Gaikwad said the allegations were false, and it was she who had blackmailed him with the threat of a rape accusation, the report added.
