The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday filed a chargesheet against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar in the Unnao rape case.
Sengar has been charged under section 120B, 363,366,376(1), 506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Sections of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POSCO) Act.
Sengar, a BJP MLA from Bangarmau in Unnao, was arrested by the CBI in April.
The teen was allegedly raped by the BJP MLA at his residence in Unnao on June 4, 2017, where she had gone seeking a job.
When the family complained, the victim’s father was instead booked by the police under the Arms Act on April 3 earlier this year and put into jail on April 5. He later died in a hospital, with the postmortem report mentioning serious injuries on his body.
