Unnao rape case: Allahabad HC orders CBI to arrest accused BJP MLA

Uttar Pradesh BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar holds grip on village so girl who alleged rape has to hide

Earlier on Tuesday, the Uttar Pradesh Police had set up a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to look into the rape accusations against Unnao MLA Kuldeep Singh Senger and other accused, and the death of the girl's father. The court also said that the body of the victim's father, who had died in police custody, should be kept safe and not be sent for cremation, according to CNN-News18.

"The approach of the learned Advocate General is not only appalling but shocks the conscience of the Court in the backdrop of the instant case". He was arrested after over 15 hours of questioning by the CBI.

In face of mounting pressure, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had agreed to transfer the case to the CBI this week in face of mounting pressure for action against the rape accused MLA from Unnao.

It asked advocate general Raghvendra Singh if the state government proposed to arrest the legislator. CBI officials also spoke to her anguished family.

The court on Thursday came down strongly on the state government for not arresting Sengar despite the registration of an FIR registration and said the administration's stand would force it to declare that "law and order has collapsed in the state".

IN has played up to their competition all year, a big reason as to why they finished the regular season 14 games above.500. Hill played on those Pacers teams that were eliminated in three straight postseasons by James and the Miami Heat.

The BJP MLA maintained that he was being framed, and told the police, "When there is an arrest warrant, call me".

To recall, the victim's father was in judicial custody since April 4, after he got into a fight with the aides of the MLA's brother, Atul Sengar. "I have come here because TV channels were saying I will surrender", he appeared to taunt reporters, insisting that he was neither a fugitive nor a rapist. "The arrest of the accused in the circumstances can be considered justified and necessary, not only to restrain his movement but also to infuse confidence in the victim and her family members of fair investigation and to restrain the accused from influencing the investigation and tampering with evidence and witnesses", the court said. Reports state that Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath had summoned accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar after the woman had tried to commit suicide outside the chief minister's residence in Lucknow on Sunday.

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party government in Uttar Pradesh handed over the Unnao rape case to the central agency after coming under attack from its political rivals for allegedly shielding Sengar. It also asked the investigating agency to produce a comprehensive progress report of the case in the court at 10 am on May 2, 2018. Since the murder charge was added later by the police, it does not reflect in the central probe agency's FIR.

The cases pertain to the alleged rape, killing of the girl's father and a case of arms act which was slapped on her father in which he was arrested by local police.
