BJP MLA Sengar sent to 7-day CBI custody

Narendra Modi

Earlier in the day, the Allahabad high court passed an order saying that the CBI should arrest the MLA and not just detain him and the probe agency should consider filing of an application for cancellation of bail granted to other accused in the case. It further appears that false cases were lodged against the family members.

BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar was sent to seven-day CBIcustody on Saturday after he was arrested over allegations of raping a teenager in Unnao a year ago. The father later succumbed to his injuries while in judicial custody. "We are constrained to record the approach and attitude of the learned Advocate General during the course of hearing, in contending that no accused person, including Kuldeep Singh, can be arrested without the Investigating Officer following the procedure prescribed under CrPC and collecting evidence in support of the allegation of rape", the Court said.

CBI yesterday interrogated Shashi Singh about the incident.

Scenes last week of Hindu lawyers trying to stop police from entering court to file charges against the eight accused - all Hindus - sparked nationwide revulsion.

The case was later handed over to the CBI.

"We have not been able to contact him since Thursday", he said.

Time to change the party name to Balatkari Janata Party?

Over 1,000 encounters were recorded in UP a year ago, killing more than 50. In another twist to the sordid tale, the rape survivor's paternal uncle has informed the media that his nephew is missing and then goons of the BJP MLA are harassing his family in the village.

He added, "This conversation shows that criminals are scared of the government's resolve to eliminate crime in the state". And to prove his point, he started his tenure with creation of "anti-Romeo squads", which ended up only harassing young boys and girls sitting together in public places. The first was of alleged rape in which the survivor was lured by a woman Shashi Singh, the second was of rioting and thrashing of the survivor's father and the third was against the survivor's father who had died in police custody.
