The CBI on Saturday booked BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar for allegedly being involved in a conspiracy to falsely frame Unnao rape victim’s father in an Arms Act. He is also accused of conspiring to kill the victim’s father, who died on April 9 in judicial custody. At present the MLA is in Sitapur jail of UP for allegedly raping a girl in Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao last year.
A special CBI court sent MLA Kuldeep to two days police remand.
CBI earlier arrested SI and former station officer Ashok Singh Bhadauriya, and SI Kamta Prasad Singh, both of Makhi Police Station in Unnao district, for allegedly framing the rape victim’s father in an Arms Act case and forging government records. At present both of them are under suspension and are in a three-day police custody.
An FIR was lodged against the rape victim’s father under the Arms Act on April 3 on a complaint by one Tinku Singh and was put in jail on April 5. He later died in a hospital, with the postmortem report mentioning serious injuries on his body.
“During investigation, we found that Bhadauriya and Kamta Prasad forged records to show that a firearm was recovered from him,” said a CBI official . “While scanning call records of the policemen, we found they were regularly in contact with the MLA who was in Delhi on April 3. Tinku Singh’s call records also suggested he was in touch with the MLA on April 3,” he added.
