Unnao: Accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar's brother arrested in connection with death of rape victim's father

A day after the father of a rape victim from Unnao died in judicial custody, the Uttar Pradesh crime branch arrested Atul Singh Sengar, the brother of BJP Bangarmau MLA Kuldeep Sengar, for allegedly beating him up.

The man’s daughter, a 17-year-old, had alleged she was raped by the BJP MLA.

The father of an 18-year-old woman, who had alleged rape by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his brothers, died in custody on Monday, prompting her to put the blame on the lawmaker. A defiant Sengar, however, rejected the charge as a conspiracy by his opponents and said the complainant belonged to a "low class", even as six policemen were suspended and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath assured whosoever is guilty will not be spared.

On Tuesday, lawmaker's brother Atul Singh along with three others have been arrested in connection with death of victim's father in jail. Atul Singh was arrested from Unnao on the directions of the Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) DGP UP, by the Lucknow crime branch team led by Superintendent of Police (SP) (crime) Dinesh Singh. However, the victim claimed that she was unaware of the arrest and urged that the accused be hanged till death.
