BJP lawmaker arrested in India rape case as outrage mounts over assaults

While his failures on various fronts were seen as a outcome of his inexperience in governance - anything beyond the precincts of the multi-crore Gorakhnath temple trust that he has been running for decades - what seems to have exposed his frailties and fallacies is the more recent Unnao rape and murder case.

Meanwhile, the harassment of the kin of the rape victim continues. Atul Singh and five other accused were sent to jail on Thursday. Finally, father of the prosecutrix succumbed to injuries. As per the police reports, the rape was to scare the Muslim community in the region.

The nabbed person has been identified as Shashi Singh. The second FIR has been filed for rioting, and four locals have been booked.

According to the postmortem report, the father was not given proper treatment at the judicial custody.

The incident sparked massive outrage in the country, with people calling for speedy justice in the case. Earlier, Uttar Pradesh Police had charged him 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, and handed over the case to the CBI.

Additional chief judicial magistrate Sunil Kumar said starting Saturday evening, the police custody will continue till 10am on April 21.

Sources said, "The central agency made a decision to arrest the MLA when he failed to satisfactorily reply to questions during interrogation".

Sengar appeared in court the same day and was ordered detained for seven days. CBI officials said they would question the MLA at length and would take him to Unnao to reconstruct the scene of the crime and to collect evidence against him.

Singh told the Bench headed by Chief Justice Dilip B Bhosale that Kuldeep Singh will not be arrested before the completion of formalities prescribed under the CrPC, inviting the Court's wrath.

CBI has registered three FIRs against Kuldeep Singh Sengar in a rape of an 18-year-old girl and murder of victim's father in the police custody. He is also likely to be confronted with the 17-year-old and her family.
