Unnao rape case: BJP MLA charged by CBI

CBI files charge sheet against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar in connection with the Unnao gangrape case. The complainant has accused Sengar of raping her at his home in 2014 when she had gone to meet him about a job. In April, she tried to commit suicide outside Chief Minister Adityanath’s house, saying that the police did not act though she had approached them several months earlier.

Earlier the CBI filed a charge-sheet against five people including the brother of MLA in the death case of the father of a minor victim in the Unnao rape case and said that CBI officials were investigating over the role of the MLA and police officials.

In April, Sengar was sent to CBI custody for seven days for his alleged involvement in the rape of a minor in Unnao last year.
