Unnao rape survivor speaks to the media on Wednesday

Unnao rape survivor speaks to the media on Wednesday

A notification was issued by the Personnel Ministry last night following a request for a CBI probe by the Uttar Pradesh government, an official said.

The minor girl had alleged that she was raped by Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the BJP legislator from Unnao, and his brother previous year, but the police refused to take any action against them.

The State Home department sent the recommendation at 1500 hrs and it was approved at 1700 hrs. "We will hold a dharna in Delhi and take our complaint to Prime Minister Narendra Modi if Kuldeep Sengar is not arrested immediately", demanded Asha, the rape victim's mother. The decision of handing over the matter to the CBI is seen as an eye wash at this moment. According to a report in a leading daily, the CBI has registered three cases against BJP MLA Sengar.

DIG of Police Praveen Kumar said the charges in the case will now include murder.

Reacting to allegations that the MLA is being defended, UP DGP OP Singh said, "Nobody is defending honourable MLA".

He had subsequently died in judicial custody and the autopsy report showed serious injuries on his body.

The officials also could not answer on the media's volley of questions that what will happen if CBI delays to takeover the investigation of the case or refuses it.

The victim had attempted suicide outside the home of UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath triggering a huge political row over women's protection in saffron-led Uttar Pradesh.

"I want strict action should be taken against him (Sengar) and he should be given severe punishment", the rape victim told ANI on Friday.

He said no one found guilty would be spared and added that action had already been taken against some policemen and doctors for laxity and negligence. The court had also asked the counsel to clarify whether or not the government would arrest the MLA, and had sought a reply after lunch. Unnao district jail superintendent AK Singh had said the girl's father was handed over to police after he was allegedly beaten by four supporters of the MLA and their unidentified associates.
