BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar booked for framing Unnao rape victim’s father in false case
BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who is in jail for allegedly raping a teenage girl in Unnao last year, was on Saturday booked by the CBI in a case of criminal conspiracy “for framing the rape victim’s father in a false case.”
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has procured two-day custody of the MLA in the fresh case.
Two cops of Makhi (Unnao) police station, arrested on Wednesday for allegedly framing the rape victim’s father in a false case, are in three-day CBI custody since Friday.
The MLA and his woman aide were earlier booked for rape and kidnapping of the teenage girl while the MLA’s brother Atul Singh Sengar and his five aides were booked for the murder of the rape victim’s father.
A CBI official said the fresh charges were slapped on the MLA on the basis of revelations made by the two cops -- former station house officer of Makhi police station Ashok Singh Bhadauria and sub-inspector Kamta Prasad Singh of the same police station.
“The MLA will be quizzed about the fresh case during the two-day custody and will be brought face-to-face with the cops,” the official said. He further said that they would get custody of Kuldeep Sengar, who is presently lodged in Sitapur jail, from Sunday morning.
The official said the cops revealed that they framed the victim’s father in a false case of possessing illegal firearms after the MLA’s brother and his aides had beaten him up brutally on April 3.
He said the two cops were arrested under charges of criminal conspiracy, giving false information, creating false evidence, framing incorrect record despite being public servant and showing illegal firearm in possession of the victim’s father.
The victim’s father had suffered multiple injuries in the attack, allegedly by MLA’s brother and his goons on April 3, but the two cops sent him to jail without providing him proper medical treatment. He died on April 9 during treatment at Unnao district hospital, where he was shifted after his condition deteriorated on April 8 night.
In five separate FIRs registered in the Unnao rape and murder cases, the CBI so far have arrested 10 people, including MLA Sengar, his brother Atul and their six aides, including a woman aide Shashi Singh, after taking up the case on April 13.
