A special CBI court here on Saturday sent, to seven days CBI custody, rape accused Uttar Pradesh BJP legislator Kuldeep Singh Sengar, while the medical examination of the 17-year-old victim was conducted at a hospital here earlier in the day.
(G.N.S) DT.16 Preliminary CBI investigation has revealed that several high-profile politicians, bureaucrats and cops were involved in shielding BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, accused of raping an 18-year-old woman, sources said. "He has been sent to 7-day CBI custody", said Sengar's lawyer.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested a 1988 batch Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer Shwetabh Suman, serving as income tax Commissioner, while taking Rs 40 lakh bribe in Assam. Shashi was brought to the court by a CBI team of DSP KK Tripathi, inspector Akhil Kumar and two constables along with women cops.
However, her uncle accused the Unnao administration of conniving to save the legislator.
After a massive public outrage over the inaction of the UP police, the case was handed over to the CBI on April 12. Meanwhile, the three FIRs have been filed by the UP Police in the case have been transferred to the CBI.
The second pertains to rioting and the alleged killing of the victim's father in judicial custody in Lucknow.
"In the absence of any allegation, why should we enter into this as to who should investigate", a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Mishra said, adding that it was "the primary duty of the state police to investigate a case".
As the rape survivor has accused the MLA and his accomplices of raping her on multiple occasion in June, 2017, UP police failed to collect any scientific evidence in the case.
At the outset, the victim's counsel Indira Jaising, who mentioned the matter for an urgent hearing in the forenoon, said the "biological father" of the victim had no grievance with regard to the police probe.
