Unnao rape case: CBI arrests BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar

Atul Singh the MLA’s brother in custody on Tuesday

The High Court, which had reserved its verdict on Thursday, further ordered that the status report in the case be presented on 2 May.

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". "Now case has been given to CBI, they will decide on arrest".

State Advocate General Raghvendra Singh, appearing on behalf of the UP government, said police has no evidence to arrest the accused MLA.

"The victim has demanded immediate arrest of the MLA". A bench comprising Chief Justice DB Bhosale and Justice Suneet Kumar gave the direction to the investigating agency after the counsel for the Uttar Pradesh government informed it that Sengar has been detained for interrogation and not arrested yet.

Yesterday, the Allahabad High Court came down heavily on the UP government, as to why the accused was not jailed yet even though an FIR had been filed against him.

The father of rape victim, who levelled rape allegation against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, died in judicial custody on Monday.

The High Court on Friday said that the victim has lost her father "merely because cognizance was not taken of her complaint made in August 2017".

Sengar had been moving around freely, denying the accusations, making disparaging comments about the girl and her family and hitting out at the media in the Unnao rape case.

Earlier on Tuesday, the brother of Sengar was arrested by the police. He has been charged under the stringent POCSO Act and sections of the Indian Penal Code that deals with rape, which are sections 363 (kidnapping), 366 (abduction of woman), 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation) and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. "Have you arrested Sengar?"

The accused MLA's brother Atul Singh Sengar was arrested earlier under various IPC sections including 302 (murder) for killing the rape victim's father in police custody, a day after the girl had protested at chief minister's residence against police inaction and tried to immolate herself.

The police, after ignoring the pleas of the minor, who says Sengar and his men gang-raped her nine months ago, had finally filed an FIR only on Thursday.

Kumar said the government chose to transfer the case to the CBI after lodging the case into the incidents of June 4, 2017, (alleged rape) and since the two other cases of April 3 this year (cross FIRs on the beating up of the victim's father leading to his death) are connected, they will also be transferred to the CBI.

The legislator welcomed the decision of the UP government to conduct a CBI probe and asserted that the findings of the central agency will aquit him from all "false" charges.
