Unnao rape accused’s wife asked for 1 crore by conman to get case dropped

According to reports, two conmen who posed as a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officer were arrested after they allegedly demanded Rs 1 crore from the wife of Unnao rape accused Kuldeep Singh Sengar to get the case against him dropped.

Police identified the two as Alok and Vijay, both residents of Lucknow.

Sangeeta Singh, the wife of Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who stays in Indira Nagar, Lucknow, received a phone call on May 5 from an unidentified number. The caller introduced himself as a BJP leader and offered to secure the release of her husband. He demanded Rs 1 crore bribe CBI officials.

When Sangeeta refused to give Rs 1 crore, the caller asked her to arrange Rs 50 lakh instead, police said. The next day, she got a call from another number and the caller introduced himself as CBI officer Rajeev Mishra. He also offered assistance to secure Sengar’s release.

These phone calls got the family suspicious as they informed the Ghazipur police station in Lucknow. On Thursday, police arrested Alok and Vijay after tracking down the phone calls.

On the other hand, Media seems to have jumped on the ‘con’ bandwagon. Earlier today, the media reported that the CBI had confirmed rape charges against Sengar. Later, the CBI released a press note refuting these reports and stating that no such confirmation had been given.

Sengar is also accused of conspiring to kill the victim’s father, who died in police custody after being allegedly thrashed by Sengar’s brother and his aides. At present, he is lodged in Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur jail.
