The chargesheet was filed in the court of additional chief judicial magistrate for CBI cases.

Nagar, who is currently lodged in the Jaipur Central Jail, was arrested on October 25.

"The CBI today (Monday) filed the chargesheet against Nagar under section 306 (rape), 323 (causing hurt) and 506 (intimidation)," said Nagar's lawyer Amar Singh.

Sources said that in the 200-page chargesheet, the CBI has listed 36 prosecution witnesses and 45 documents.

The case relates to allegations leveled by the 35-year-old complainant (victim) against the accused for causing hurt and committing rape on September 11.

The CBI had taken over investigation of the case, earlier registered by state police at police station Sodala in Jaipur.

Nagar, 53, resigned from the state cabinet two days after the FIR was registered on September 17. He was minister of state for dairy and rural industries.

In her police complaint, the 35-year-old woman alleged that Nagar called her to his official residence on the pretext of giving her a government job and raped her on September 11.
