Unnao rape: Alleged pressure from high-profile leaders to protect MLA

Unnao rape case Live updates: Union Minister Maneka Gandhi breaks silence, says 'will add death penalty in POCSO

"The real culprit of Unnao's victim, who was raped reportedly in June 2017, and who pleaded at the doorstep of the BJP CM even attempting self-immolation is no one but the Chief Minister and he should immediately be sacked", said Surjewala.

He said Forest Minister Lal Singh and Industries Minister C P Ganga were mere sacrificial lambs for the BJP in order to save its opportunistic alliance with the PDP.

The police officer tells him that the current government under the BJP is stricter against criminals than the previous Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party governments and that he would have to "change with the times".

After the meeting, Works Minister and senior PDP leader Naeem Ahkar, who is also the government spokesperson, "appreciated" the BJP support in the handling of the case which had caused fissures in the alliance. Then it was given to Crime Branch and two more people were picked up. The ministers, however, clarified on Saturday that they were sent for the protest march by party state president Sat Sharma.

"The charge that the two ministers were pro-rapist is absolutely wrong".

As far as this case is concerned, we have done our bit by allaying the fears and misconception created in the minds of not only the people of Jammu and Kashmir but also in the entire country by asking our two ministers to resign. "Beyond that I don't think there will be any impact of this incident or these developments on the coalition".
