Humiliation continues for Yogi govt in Unnao rape case


Lucknow, Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh continued to face humiliation, even after the action of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the Unnao rape case, with Allahabad High Court directing the central agency to immediately official arrest the accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar. The court, which was annoyed with the role of the investigating agency was furious,when the Additional Advocate General informed them that the MLA has been detained by the CBI. Now, the HC bench headed by Chief Justice D B Bhosle will monitor the case and give several directions to the CBI, including vacating the bails of other accused and all the FIRs in the case. The court will monitor the case again on May 2.However, Sengar has maintained his innocence and claimed that he has been framed in the gangrape case. UP police's failure to arrest Sengar was noticed by the Allahabad High Court too, which on Thursday asked why the accused BJP MLA had not been arrested. The court also observed that based on the prevailing situation, it would be compelled to say in its order that the law and order situation in UP has collapsed. Earlier in the morning, the CBI sleuths raided the residence of BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and took him in custody, in connection with the Unnao gangrape case. However, confusion prevailed on whether he was arrested or detained. But, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in his statement said that the MLA has been arrested and even went to the extent of saying that the government has zero tolerance toward crime against women and none would be spared. However, after the HC directive, CBI was processing to arrest him and produce before a local court in Lucknow to take him in police remand. CBI sources told UNI that the probe agency's team took the legislator in custody from his residence in Indira Nagar area at 0415 hrs. There were reports too that the MLA was preparing to leave Lucknow in the morning. A seven-member CBI team took Sengar to the agency office in Lucknow for interrogation and for the past 12 hours, the MLA is being grilled to find out his involvement in the case. On the other hand, another CBI team comprising of around five members, went to Unnao and met the family of the survivor, holed up in a hotel by the authorities. The team also went to Makhi police station, the district hospital and jail, where the father of the survivor died. CBI is also likely to grill the suspended policemen and a few senior police officials of Unnao district, while they are trying to link the crime with the family members of the MLA, including his brother Atul, who is also in jail.
