FIR registered against BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar, case handed over to CBI

The Unnao rape case in which the BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar is accused has seen fresh developments after the SIT constituted by UP government visited Unnao. An FIR has now been registered against the accused MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar. 

The principal secretary of the home department of UP said in a press conference that the case was being transferred to the CBI. The DGP of UP police who participated in the press conference along with the principal secretary of home department said that no one was being shielded in the case. He added that CBI would now decide on the arrest of the MLA as the case has been transferred to them.

The DGP was also criticised by media for using the prefix ‘Mananiya’ for the accused MLA. OP Singh clarified that the prefix was used as he is an elected representative and not a convicted criminal at the moment.

Meanwhile, the rape victim has demanded the arrest of the MLA as she feels that he can influence the investigation if he is outside the jail. She added that she feared for her uncle’s life.

The state government had come under severe criticism for not registering a case against Kuldeep Sengar. Earlier, the MLA’s brother Atul Sengar was arrested in relation to the case.
