Unnao case: CBI charges BJP MLA with raping minor girl

Unnao, Rape, CBI, BJP MLA

BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar was today charged by the CBI with raping a minor girl at his residence at Makhi village in Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh on June 4 last year, officials said.

The CBI was handed over the case by the state government nearly 10 months after the crime after a self-immolation bid by the victim in front of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence and the subsequent death of her father in jail from injuries allegedly inflicted by the brother of the MLA in April this year.

In its charge sheet filed in a special CBI court here today, the agency charged Sengar and his associate Sashi Singh with rape (section 3 and 4 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act), criminal conspiracy (IPC Section 120B), kidnapping (IPC sections 363 and 366), criminal intimidation (IPC section 506), the officials said.

They said during the three-month-long probe, the investigators found that the allegations levelled by the minor girl were tenable, prompting the agency to file the charge sheet against Sengar, a four-time MLA who enjoys immense clout in the area. PTI
