Unnao rape case: CBI names BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar as accused in chargesheet

New Delhi, Jul 11 (NIE): The CBI on Wednesday named Uttar Pradesh BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar as accused in its chargesheet filed in the Unnao gangrape case. In April, a 17-year-old girl had alleged that she was raped by the Bangermau MLA at his residence when she had gone to meet him with a relative seeking a job last year. Sengar, who has remained defiant, is lodged in Sitapur district jail along with Shashi Singh, the woman who allegedly took the victim to the BJP MLA on the day of the crime.

The incident had come to light in April after the woman tried to commit suicide outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s residence, alleging police inaction even though she had approached them several months earlier. The kin of the victim had also alleged that the family was thrashed after a complaint was filed with the police in this regard. The incident had led to nationwide anger, prompting the state government to hand over the investigation to CBI.

In its first chargesheet in the Unnao cases, the CBI on Saturday charged five people, including Sengar’s brother of murdering the rape victim’s father. The rape survivor’s father had died in judicial custody after he was slapped with arms act by the local police and succumbed to injuries in the absence of treatment on April 8.

The chargesheet, filed with special judicial magistrate (CBI) Sapna Tripathi in Lucknow, names the legislator’s brother Jai Deep Singh alias Atul Singh, Vineet Mishra, Birendra Singh alias Bauwa Singh, Ram Sharan Singh alias Sonu Singh and Shashi Pratap alias Suman. The five are presently lodged in Lucknow district jail.

    BJP should sacrifice the rapist if they want to maintain the party's credibility. They should allow the law of the land to take its own course.

    One more 'Bharat Mata' daughter was raped by the ruling elite of BJP. But those who chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' with high pitch now commoditized. The student body of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh ABVP that has massed the young students know remains speechless.
    PM Modi and BJP Modi Should Remember Rape is Also a Weapon of Ideology, Savarkar Its Proponent.This is the same Savarkar whose portrait was placed in parliament under the stewardship of the BJP and whom Modi referred to as ‘a true patriot.’ Savarkar’s call for rape as a political weapon still finds open resonance among communal fanatics. Yogi Adityanath, now the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, once made a speech threatening to “convert a hundred Muslim girls for every 1 Hindu girl that ‘they’ take.” Members of Adityanath’s Hindu Yuva Vahini have openly called for the exhumation and rape of dead Muslim women. In Gujarat in 2002, Delhi 1984 and Muzaffarnagar in 2013, rape was used as a weapon against minority women.
    Recently after issuing orders to withdraw criminal cases pending in courts against BJP leaders in Muzaffarnagar riots, the Yogi Adityanath government has passed another order to withdraw rape case against former Union minister of state for Home and founder of Vishwa Hindu Parishad Swami Chinmayanand.
    The rape case was registered by a resident of Badyun district and a disciple of Swami Chinmayanand on November 30, 2011 at Sadar Police Station in Shahjahanpur. The lady had alleged in the FIR that the former BJP MP from Jaunpur had held her captive in his Ashram and raped her in 2004. She was allegedly issued life threats to keep her mouth shut by Swami Chinmayanand and his henchmen.
    Earlier, the Yogi Adityanath government had withdrawn over 20,000 cases lodged against political leaders in Uttar Pradesh. Is this one case will ever provide justice when BJP has massed rallies for rape accused in Kashmir 8 years nomad girl in temple?

    Thanks to an impartial & fair investigation by the CBI under BJP government. CONGRESS would have given clean chit for its MLA just like it happened here in Karnataka in the George case

    Rapes continue in UP while the feku still is focused on protecting cattle !
    Hope India throws out these BJP megalomaniacs in 2019. I am no Congress supporter but have definitely become anti BJP after what they have done (and what they have allowed goons to do) after coming to power.

    Why to name as BJP MLA? Everyone is aware it is their tradition and trend. Can you show a single person including FEKU AND DAKU without a crime on their head. Unfortunately all unpad bhakths vote them!

    MLAs and MPs are above law, especially if they belong to the ruling party.

    As many commented here, it is Balatkar Jumla Party and here one of their members, BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar proved the same.
