Yogi must be sacked for 'shielding' rape accused: Congress

Unnao rape case: On Thursday, police lodged an FIR against Kuldeep Singh Sengar in connection with the alleged rape after the state government chose to hand over the probe to the CBI. While being taken to the court, Sengar was quoted saying "I have faith in judiciary".

Disagreeing with the submissions of the Advocate General, the bench said, "We are constrained to record the approach and attitude of the learned Advocate General, during the course of hearing, in contending that no accused person, including Kuldeep Singh, can be arrested without the Investigating Officer following the procedure prescribed under CrPC and collecting evidence in support of the allegation of rape".

Earlier today, the victim, who along with her family reached Lucknow, said that she wants Sengar to be hanged.

Sengar, the MLA from Bangarmau in Unnao district, was brought here at the CBI office early on Friday when he was about to leave for Varanasi.

Additional chief judicial magistrate of the CBI court Sunil Kumar also approved judicial remand of the accused from April 21 until April 28.

She says the six kids were regularly punished for common childlike and adolescent behavior, such as laughing too loudly. The bodies of three of their children - Markis, 19, Jeremiah, 14, and Abigail, 14 - were found nearby.

Sengar has been charged under the POSCO Act and other relevant sections under the Indian Penal Code.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday reacted on the Unnao alleged rape incident and said that his government would not compromise on its policy of zero tolerance against crime and corruption. The rang rape of the girl after which her father ran from pillar to post to nail the ruling party legislator, only to end up battered and bruised and dead in police custody, has triggered a political storm and public outrage. "The J&K Police conducted a thorough investigation and have arrested the accused".

The case came to national prominence this week when the teenager tried to burn herself alive outside the residence of the Uttar Pradesh chief minister. "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 victim's mother, in her complaint to the UP Police, which is now part of the CBI's first information report ( FIR), alleged that while the MLA was raping her daughter, Singh stood guard outside. The agency filed three FIRs late on Thursday over the 2017 rape and the victim's father's death in police custody. "'Jungle raaj" and "gunda raaj" actively aided and abetted by Adityanath government has become a pain for the people of the state and has conclusively exposed BJP's slogan of "Beti Bachao'", he added. The Allahabad High Court slammed the state government, ordered arrest of all accused in the case and said it would monitor the probe. The party has also demanded his immediate sacking.
