BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who is involved in raping a 17-year-old minor girl, was today arrested by the CBI.
“We have arrested Kuldeep Sengar on charges of prima facie rape. There are certain inconsistencies in statements over the June 4 incident for which we require his custody. He will be produced before local CBI court in Lucknow tomorrow,” said a CBI source in Lucknow.
Earlier today, the BJP MLA was detained by the CBI from his Lucknow residence for questioning.
The CBI’s early morning move came on a day the Allahabad High Court came down heavily on the Adityanath control over Unnao case, asking it to arrest the accused MLA.
