Unnao rape case: Allahabad HC to pronounce verdict at 2pm today

Unnao rape case: Allahabad HC to pronounce verdict at 2pm today

The court on Thursday came down strongly on the state government for not arresting Sengar despite the registration of an FIR registration and said the administration's stand would force it to declare that "law and order has collapsed in the state".

Late on Wednesday, Sengar, with a convoy of 20 vehicles full of supporters, went to the official residence of a senior police officer in Lucknow to claim that he had neither raped the teenager nor had a role in her father's death. He was arrested after over 15 hours of questioning by the CBI.

"The disturbing feature of the case is that the law and order machinery and the government officials were directly in league and under the influence of Kuldeep Singh", the judges said, criticising the law officer's approach.

Sengar, on Wednesday night, asked the Lucknow police to call him if there was an arrest warrant against him. It will also record the statements of the policemen at the Makhi police station along with the doctors, who examined the teenager's father.

The agency which was referred the matter only yesterday took immediate action by re-registering the UP police FIRs and brought the four-time MLA to its Lucknow office at around 5 am for questioning, they said.

The BJP MLA has been charged under the stringent POCSO Act and sections of the Indian Penal Code or IPC dealing with rape.

The FIR itself came days after the Unnao girl tried to self-immolate in front of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's house on Sunday accusing authorities of inaction, and the death of her father in custody the next day allegedly after being beaten up by the politician's brother and their henchmen in front of policemen.

On Thursday, police lodged an FIR against Sengar in connection with the alleged gangrape after the UP government made a decision to hand over the probe to the CBI. Her father, who was in judicial custody since April 4 after he got into a fight with the MLA's brother, died on Monday.

Allahabad HC severely reprimanded the UP government on Friday on the Unnao rape case.

However, OP Singh, DGP of UP, cleared that no one was backing up the BJP MLA. The Chief Medical Officer furnished a fitness certificate and sent the father to jail where he succumbed to injuries.

The Supreme Court will also hear next week a plea for CBI probe into the Unnao gangrape case.

In February, the girl's family moved court seeking to include the MLA's name in the rape case.

Other cases pending against Kuldeep Singh Sengar are Section 171 IPC (Wearing garb or carrying token used by public servant with fraudulent intent), Section 188 IPC (Disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), Section 353 IPC ( Assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty) and many more.

Sibal also alleged that Modi was "not serious" about the crimes against women across the country, in an apparent reference to another rape case in Kathua, Jammu and Kashmir, where the BJP is in the ruling alliance with the PDP.
