Unnao rape: CBI confirms MLA raped woman, police protected him

BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar was arrested by the CBI on April 13 after a girl accused him of raping her last year

When she finally approached police on June 20, local cops were "reluctant" to file an FIR.

The CBI, however, has officially denied reports that rape charges against Sengar have been confirmed, stating that such stories are completely speculative.

The rape survivor had repeatedly claimed that BJP MLA raped her at his home in Uttar Pradesh's Makhi village on 4 June 2017. On June 11, she was abducted by three persons - Shubham Singh, Awadh Narayan and Brijesh Yadav.

Sources said that the police had not named Sengar at the time and some other accused in the FIR.

The police, a CBI officer said, also connived with the accused to delay the girl's medical examination and didn't send the vaginal swab or her clothes to the forensic laboratory. Following the outrage an FIR was lodged against Sengar.

On May 8, Sengar, main accused in the Unnao rape case was shifted from the Unnao Jail to Sitapur Jail after an appeal was filed in the Allahabad High Court by the victim's family, reported ANI.

CBI recorded the survivor's statements before a magistrate under CrPC Section 164, which is admissible in law as evidence, in which she "stood by" the allegations. Commenting on the delay in the case, a CBI officer told TOI that the matter was earlier being investigated by the Unnao police which delayed the proceedings in case.

The case made headlines last month when the victim and her family tried to kill themselves outside CM Yogi Adityanath's house.

The case had been handed over to the CBI after a hue and cry about political pressure on the police; UP Police had acted only recently, after the DSP, local SHO and four constables were suspended.

Woman Shashi Singh, who is accused of taking the girl to the legislator was also arrested.

Victim demands death penalty for Sengar: Speaking to news agency ANI, the victim on Friday demanded death penalty for Sengar.

Meanwhile, Unnao rape case victim demanded death penalty for BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar for raping her and murdering her father. He also demanded death penalty for the BJP MLA.

"Two people have been arrested for demanding Rs 1 crore from Sangeeta Singh, wife of Kuldeep Singh Sengar. They were offering to secure release of the MLA from custody", HT quoted Deepak Kumar, SSP, Lucknow as saying.
