CBI detains BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar for questioning
13 April, 2018
Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the BJP lawmaker from Uttar Pradesh, who has been charged for raping a 16-year-old girl last year, has been taken into the custody by the CBI for questioning at Indira Nagar. Sengar has been brought to the Lucknow office of the Central Bureau of Investigation, after it took over the probe on Thursday evening. 

The BJP MLA has been charged under the stringent POCSO Act and sections of the Indian Penal Code or IPC dealing with rape.

The notice to the CBI to take over the Unnao case was issued on Thursday night, following which the probe agency in a matter of a few hours picked up the BJP legislator from his Lucknow home at 4:30 am.

The CBI has registered three separate cases related to alleged rape of a woman by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who was detained by the agency in the early hours of Friday for questioning, officials said.

Sources said Sengar's questioning is going on at the CBI office in Lucknow. The officials said three separate cases have been registered into the alleged rape and incidents following it.

Despite being taken into CBI custody, BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar denied being held by the CBI and said that he had, in fact, arrived on his own at the agency's head office in Hazratganj.

Yesterday, the Allahabad High Court had come down heavily on the UP government, asking it whether it proposes to arrest Sengar over the Unnao rape case. The cops failed to book a case against the MLA citing there was no evidence against him a year ago. 

The UP DGP came under fire by media for calling rape accused as honourable MLA.
