Nusrat Jahan is a well-known MP of Mamata Banerjee’s party Trinamool Congress (TMC). Bengali actress Nusrat has been elected as an MP from Basirhat Lok Sabha seat in 2019. His name was earlier associated with a gang rape accused. On 5 February 2012, a divorced woman was gang-raped by five men in the Park Street area of Kolkata and later thrown out of a moving vehicle. This rape case was in the news at that time.
Police immediately arrested the three accused after investigating the case but both the accused escaped. The absconding accused include Kader Khan and Mohammad Ali. Kadar was in a relationship with Nusrat at that time. The two were in a relationship a few months before the gang-rape incident and planned to marry the same year.
The actress alleged that Kader Khan, who was absconding after the rape, was in touch with her, and Nusrat hid the talk from everyone. She said that she had met Kadar after the February 5 incident, but was unaware that he had been accused of rape. Police investigations have revealed that Nusrat had booked a room in a hotel in Mumbai in the name of himself and Kadar, however, he had told the police that the two had not met.
In 2016, Kader Khan and Mohammad Ali were arrested from Ghaziabad, UP. In this case, a case was sought to be filed against Nusrat to hide the accused but the police did not do so. Currently, Nusrat is currently married to businessman Nikhil Jain. He is currently active in both politics and film.
