Unnao rape case LIVE updates: CBI takes case after PM Modi's intervention

12 April 2018, 07:20 PM

An FIR has been registered against the rape accused Kuldeep Sengar on Thursday, confirmed SO Rajesh Singh to ANI. The case has been filed at the Makhi police station in Unnao. 

The case has been registered under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (including Section 376 for rape) and POCSO Act.

Unnao rape accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar asked the police on Wednesday night in Lucknow to call him if there was an arrest warrant. "When there is an arrest warrant, call me,”.

Sengar reached the Lucknow SSP's office at midnight and told reporters he was being framed. “I just came here to prove that I have done no wrong and would be here anytime the police wants me,” he told reporters as he was leaving.

In a midnight drama that unfolded after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah returned to the national capital from Lucknow, the rape-accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar reached the Senior Superintendent of Police's (SSP) office with two dozens supporters in tow.
When confronted by the media, the MLA said that he had come to enquire whether his name had appeared in any of the First Information Reports (FIRs).

"Hum to ye pata lagaane aaye the ki kahin hamara naam kisi FIR me hai ya nahi (I just came to find out whether I was named in any FIR)," he said. Sengar showed up at the SSP's office at around 11.40 pm.

He told media persons that naming him an "absconder" was not fair. On their way back, Sengar and his aides got into a scuffle with reporters.
In Unnao, about 50 kilometres from Lucknow, four-time BJP MLA Sengar and his brothers allegedly gang-raped an 18-year-old girl.
