Guwahati: Arunachal Pradesh BJP president Tapir Gao, on Tuesday denied his presence in the viral sex CD and labelled it as "fake".
Tapir Gao, who is going to contest Lok Sabha elections from Arunachal East seat alleged that some of his own party workers has circulated the doctored CD to tarnish his image.
Referring to the sex CD that went viral on social media, Mr Gao said, “The party has already filed an FIR against some people who were trying to blackmail me with a morphed explicit CD.”
Doling out the copy of the FIR, Gao informed that state government has constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to bust the conspiracy hatched to defame him.

“I have given the names of the people to police who called me asking for Rs 15 crore as well as Arunachal East seat,” said Gao asserting that such fake CD would not affect his electoral prospect.
