The Central Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday filed a chargesheet against Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar in connection with the Unnao rape case. The Bangermau legislator is already in jail for allegedly raping the teenager in June 2017.
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 attempted suicide outside Chief Minister Adityanath’s house, alleging that the police did not act on her complaint though she had approached them several months earlier. The CBI arrested Sengar on April 13.
In the chargesheet, Sengar and his associate Sashi Singh have been charged with criminal conspiracy and other offences under the Indian Penal Code, and with rape of minors under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. The investigating agency has said that the complainant was raped at Sengar’s home on June 4, 2017, and again between June 11, 2017 to June 20, 2017 by some other accused.
Earlier this year, the CBI filed a chargesheet against Sengar’s brother Atul Sengar and four others in connection with the death of the complainant’s father on April 9. The father, who was in judicial custody at the time, died after he got into a fight with Atul Singh Sengar.
Soon after, the police arrested Atul Sengar and the other four for the assault. In May, the CBI booked Kuldeep Singh Sengar for criminal conspiracy, alleging that he had tried to implicate the complainant’s father in a false case.
The father’s autopsy listed multiple abrasions near the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, above and below the knee joints and arms, indicating that his death may have been caused by physical assault.
