"To harass a woman, Shirodkar's supporters have stooped so low to threaten me of gangrape," she told news agency ANI.

Diya Shetkar has urged the police to take the matter very seriously. A complaint had been registered against an unknown person.

In October, Mr Shirodkar had joined the BJP after stepping down as the Congress lawmaker for Siroda in the Goa Legislative Assembly.

Ms Shetkar, who is also a lawyer, told IANS that she had earlier campaigned against him.

Mr Shirodkar has not responded to the allegations yet.
