In the alleged gangrape case, police has arrested MLA Kuldip Singh Sengar’s brothers Atul Singh, no FIR has still been lodged against the MLA who has denied the allegation against him by the girl and her family a PTI report quoted Sengar as telling reporters outside the CM’s residence that “they belong to a low-status family (‘nimn star ke log hain’)… This is a conspiracy by my opponents”.
The uproar over the death of the 17-year old gang rape survivor girl’s father — a video clip of the injured man did the rounds on social media Monday compelled the police to suspend the Station Officer and five policemen of Makhi police station.
The MLA’s four supporters — Vineet, Bauwa, Shailu and Sonu — and some unidentified persons were named by the family in an FIR on April 3. It was the day the girl’s father was arrested in an Arms Act case and also booked under charges relating to voluntarily causing hurt, intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace.
But police arrested the four men only Monday after the girl’s father died at the Unnao district hospital. He was taken to the hospital Sunday night after he vomited and complained of abdominal pain.
Unnao district jail superintendent A K Singh 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. He was first taken to the district hospital and then sent to the jail next day around 7.30 pm.
