The CBI on Saturday booked BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who is in jail for allegedly raping a teenage girl in Unnao last year, in a case of criminal conspiracy for allegedly ‘falsely implicating the rape victim’s father in an Arms Act case’.
The victim’s father, who died in police custody, was arrested after the family attempted to commit suicide outside Chief Minister Adityanath’s Lucknow residence.
A CBI court on Saturday sent the Bangarmau MLA to two days’ police remand and the agency plans to question him with evidence they have gathered after two policemen involved were arrested earlier, the report quoted the official as saying. On Wednesday, two cops of Makhi (Unnao) police station were arrested for allegedly framing the rape victim’s father in a false case. They are in a three-day CBI custody since Friday.
The BJP MLA who is currently in police custody on charges of rape was arrested on April 13 after an immediate order from the Allahabad High Court. The CBI had earlier this month confirmed allegation of rape against him.
