Unnao rape case: On Thursday, police lodged an FIR against Kuldeep Singh Sengar in connection with the alleged rape after the state government chose to hand over the probe to the CBI.

Today, Allahabad High Court ordered the arrest of the BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl last year.

3 FIRs have been filed in the rape case, in the 1 FIR Sengar has been accused in the rape case.

The victim has alleged that the MLA, his brother and their some other supporters had gang-raped her after she had approached the lawmaker for a job.

She has also alleged that while the MLA was raping her daughter, Shashi Singh stood outside the room as a guard. I believe the CBI would have arrested the MLA also.

The matter caught attention of media when the girl tried to immolate herself in front of the Chief Minister's residence last week.

Following that, chief medical officer and medical officer on emergency duty were suspended and departmental inquiry was initiated against three doctors as father of rape victim who died during treatment did not get proper treatment and was not examined before being jailed. A senior CBI official said the MLA from Bangarmau in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao district was taken from a house in Lucknow's Indira Nagar area to the agency's office in Hazratganj around 4 am on Saturday.

A bench of Chief Justice DB Bhosale and Justice Suneet Kumar gave the direction to the agency after the counsel for the Uttar Pradesh government informed it that Sengar has been detained for interrogation and not arrested yet.

In its 20-page order, the court also said, "The disturbing feature of the case is that the law and order machinery and the government officials were directly in league and under the influence of Kuldeep Singh". A seven-member team interrogated him while another team left for Unnao to record statements of the victim and her family who are putting up at a hotel, said sources.

Earlier on Friday, the Allahabad High Court had told the CBI to arrest, not just detain, Sengar.

Lekhi said: "In Kathua rape case, a fair probe is going on and strictest action has been demanded against the culprits". Sengar is accused of raping a teenager in Unnao district in June 2017. The second one pertains to rioting, in which four locals have been booked, and also the alleged killing of the victim's father in judicial custody.
