BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation team on Friday evening in connection with the alleged rape of a minor girl in Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh, officials said.

The Bangarmau legislator was taken into custody after intense questioning for 16 hours by a Central Bureau of Investigation team at its office on Naval Kishore Road in Lucknow. He was brought to the office at around 5 AM today, the officials said in New Delhi.

CBI has registered 3 cases against Kuldeep Singh Sengar.

Earlier in the day, the Allahabad High Court ordered his immediate arrest, saying he was "influencing" the law and order machinery.

The victim has alleged that she was raped by the MLA at his residence on June 4, 2017 where she had gone with a relative seeking a job.

After filing of the case, the victim’s father was booked by the police under the Arms Act on April 3 this year and kept under police custody on April 5.

Frustrated with the alleged inaction and coercion from powerful people, the victim attempted self-immolation in front of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s residence on April 8 which made headlines.

The next day, her father died in jail with post-mortem suggesting serious injuries on his body.
