Unnao rape case: Court sent accused MLA on 7 days CBI remand

The power employees’ unions rose up in arms in protest immediately after the Yogi Adityanath-headed cabinet on March 16 gave its nod for the proposal seeking to hand over electricity distribution in five cities to private franchisees

Now CBI registered three cases on Kuldeep Singh Sengar and he has been taken into custody and an investigation is on.

The case came into the limelight after the victim tried to immolate herself on Sunday outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence, alleging police inaction against Sengar.

The Allahabad High Court also directed the Central Bureau of Investigation on April 13 to arrest MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the accused in the alleged rape case of a minor girl in 2017.

A 17-year-old had accused the BJP MLA and his brother of gangraping her last year, and alleged that the authorities did not pursue the case to bring her justice.

Syria 'Chemical Attack': US Weighs Up Military Response
Asked about the risks of USA military retaliation, Mattis cited two concerns, starting with avoiding civilian casualties. In Syria, this instinct points him away from a military-centric answer to Assad, writes Bonnie Kristian.

A team visited the crime scenes in Makhi village in Unnao district and talked to the victims family, witnesses and officials of the hospital where the victim and her father were taken for treatment. Those arrested include CO Kunwar Singh, SO Ashok Kumar and other police personnel.

He however rued the fact that his initial demand for a CBI probe was stonewalled by the state and regretted that had this probe been ordered earlier, his brother would have been alive.

Sengar was taken to the CBI headquarters in Hazaratganj in Lucknow.

Investigations to prove one way or another actually began in earnest when Adityanath constituted a Special Investigation Team which handed its first report to CBI - handing over the investigations as well.

Sir Martin Sorrell steps down from WPP following claims of personal misconduct
The chief executive of the world's largest advertising agency, WPP , is stepping down with immediate effect. WPP said that the probe had concluded, adding "the allegation did not involve amounts that are material".

He also said before the court that he has "faith in the judiciary", as reported by news agency ANI. The Unnao case, and the rape and murder of an eight-year-old in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua have sparked massive outrage across the country, with people demanding justice for the victims and safety of women. The police put the onus on the CBI to arrest the MLA, who has remained defiant and has dubbed allegations as a political conspiracy.

He said the failure of the state government on the law-and-order front had been completely exposed by the Unnao incident, where "a lawmaker of the ruling party was accused of rape and police were found protecting him".

The agency arrested the BJP MLA from Bangarmau last night after 16 hours of questioning at its office in Lucknow.
