Yogi Adityanath real culprit in Unnao rape case, say Congress

On Saturday, the CBI is trying to verify the claim of BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar that he was attending a birthday function in Kanpur city at the time he was alleged to have committed rape on June 4, 2017.

Lal Singh said that Geelani had issued statements against transferring the case to CBI when residents of the Rassana village belonging to the Hindu community started migrating from there because of alleged excesses of men of the crime branch and demanded CBI enquiry into the case.

According to the complaint to UP Police, victim's mother also alleged that while the MLA was raping her daughter, Shashi Singh stood outside the room as a guard.

Earlier, Allahabad High Court slammed the Uttar Pradesh government and the state police for the inaction in the case and ordered CBI to immediately arrest the accused MLA. An FIR was lodged against Sengar on Thursday under sections 363 (kidnapping), 366 (abduction of woman), 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. She has been named as co-accused for allegedly taking the 17-year-old girl to Sengar's house on the promise of a job. Three cases have been filed against the BJP legislator.

In an embarrassing episode for the Uttar Pradesh Police, a police officer has allegedly been recorded discussing a planned encounter with the target and advising him to make a deal with BJP leaders. She went to the BJP MLA seeking a job, media reports.

Ram Madhav Singh further said that the Jammu and Kashmir government will ensure justice for the 8-year-old rape victim and said that culprits should be punished. Shashi Singh, 52, was questioned at the CBI's Lucknow office before her arrest. Two days ago, speaking on the recent rape incidents, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said no perpetrators will be spared involved in the case. Her strong views and attitude to take on any leader in the party is said to be worrying many.
