The victim's lawyer SP Singh said that as per the application by the victim, the BJP MLA is accused of sexual harassment while his wife is accused of offering money to hide the crime.
The court has accepted the application of the victim today and ordered the SHO Nehru Colony to register the case.
Uttarakhand DG Law and Order Ashok Kumar said that police will follow the court's order.
Earlier, Nainital High Court stayed the arrest of the woman who accused BJP MLA Mahesh Negi of sexual harassment.
