The accused was held by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for scrutinising goal on early Friday morning. Adityanath had earlier also said that no one found guilty in the case would be spared.

Sengar has been accused of rape, intimidation and assault and had a case lodged against him by the Unnao police on Thursday under sections 363, 366, 376 and 506 of Indian Penal Code pertaining to rape, abduction, and intimidation and provisions of POCSO Act.

"Naari Virodhi (anti-woman) Adityanath has not only utterly failed in his constitutional duties as the Chief Minister and abused the oath of office but also played an important protagonist in safeguarding the interests of the rape accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar", he added.

The Allahabad High Court has already appointed an amicus curiae and directed the Yogi Adityanath government to file all details related to the case. He also emphasised that government will take stringent action against the culprits.

Previously the victim's father died in judicial custody nearly a week after he was reportedly thrashed by the MLA's brother and others.

The infamous "tandoor case" involved former Youth Congress leader Sushil Sharma, who is serving a life term for the murder of his wife, Naina Sahni, in which the body of the victim was disposed of by putting it in the tandoor of a restaurant in the national capital in 1995. The 2nd is in rioting, in which 4 people have been taken into custody.

The teen, from Uttar Pradesh's Unnao district, had accused the MLA and his associates of raping her in June 2017. However, on April 9, he was admitted to a hospital after complaining about abdominal pain and vomiting and subsequently died there.
