Midnight Drama as Rape Accused BJP MLA Meets Cops, Returns Without Surrendering

The attack came after the family's failed attempts to get justice for their 18-year-old daughter who was allegedly raped by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his brother Atul Singh in June 2017

The BJP lawmaker, informed sources said, got irritated on more than one occasion and then broke down during his grilling by CBI sleuths.

Within hours of taking over the investigation, the CBI brought Sengar, who had remained untouched by the state police, to its office in Lucknow, where he was questioned for almost 16 hours before being taken into custody.

"We support fair investigation". The court also asked the CBI to present a status report in the case on May 2. "We also thank the media for supporting out fight against the MLA and his cronies", thevictim's sister said.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday assured that strict actions would be taken against the accused in the Unnao gangrape case. In the first FIR, the CBI named Sengar and Shashi Singh, a woman who allegedly took the rape victim to the BJP leader's house. After taking over the case, the CBI took the accused MLA into custody at around 0430 hrs on Friday.

The case was registered hours before the high court was to hear the matter, and so was the UP government's decision on transferring the case to the CBI late last night.

Russian Federation threatens retaliation as USA & its allies launch attack on Syria
Speaking of Assad and his suspected role in last week's chemical weapons attack, Trump said, "These are not the actions of a man". Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security.


The victim, who claims she was raped last June by the MLA at his home, also told The Times of India that Atul Singh, the MLAs brother, spread terror in Makhi, her village, and how he used to torment his opponents.

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.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had agreed to transfer the case to the CBI this week in face of mounting pressure to crack down on the powerful Unnao MLA. The state government also ordered the handing over of the twin cases of rape and the custodial death of the victim's father to the CBI.

Meanwhile, the Allahabad High Court came down heavily on UP Police on Thursday, asking why Sengar had not already been arrested.

The CM's comments came five days after the victim tried to immolate herself in front of the CM's residence demanding justice. The next day, her father, who had been detained by local police after he was alleged assaulted, died in custody.
