Unnao Rape Case: CBI Arrests Woman Who Lured Victim to BJP MLA

Share

Sengar's lawyer said, "We support fair investigation". In spite of the SIT report, you are repeating that you can take any action only after further investigation.

"What is disturbing... is that the father of the prosecutrix, for no reason, came to be arrested and was in custody, where, we are informed, he was mercilessly beaten and succumbed to injuries", said the court.

BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who is the main accused in the rape of a 17-year-old girl in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao, has been sent to seven-day CBI custody.

"The first FIR is related to allegations of rape on the MLA and a woman, the second is of the June 2017 event in which the teenager's family accused four people of kidnapping and raping her", it said.

Rape victim's uncle alleged that his brother was being forced to take the case back and when he refused, false cases were lodged against him. Sengar was arrested last night after an uproar across the country over the "inaction" by the Uttar Pradesh Police in the case.

The Government has also made a decision to extend security to the family of the 17-year-old girl, the DGP said.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had sought a 14-day remand but the court only allowed a week-long remand. "The influence of the accused is such that the circle officer also declined to lodge the report on the complaint duly forwarded by the office of the chief minister", it said. Sengar was presented before the Lucknow court where he denied all charges against him and maintained his innocence. The rape victim attempted suicide outside UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence which created a sensation.

The Supreme Court will also hear next week a plea for CBI probe into the Unnao gangrape case.

A CBI team also visted Unnao and quizzed several others including Unnao police and jail officials, doctors, witnesses and members of the victim's family to gather evidence before officially announcing the arrest of the lawmaker.

Up to six police personnel were suspended for allegedly beating up the victim's father, who died on April 9.
