A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on Tuesday remanded prime accused Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar’s brother Atul Singh and four other associates to a four-day police custody in connection with the Unnao rape case.
The rape survivor’s family has alleged that BLP MLA Sengar’s brother Atul Singh Sengar, along with his companions, had also raped the girl and thrashed the victim’s father to death over his refusal to withdraw the FIR.

A CBI official said: “The court has sent five accused — Atul Sengar, Bauaa, Vineet, Sonu and Shail — to four days in police custody. The agency has brought all the detainees to the Lucknow branch for further interrogation.

On the strict directions of the Allahabad High Court, the CBI has lodged a fresh fourth FIR in which it has mentioned Shashi Singh’s son Shubham Singh and Awadesh Tiwari as accused in the case of alleged kidnapping and gangrape of the Unnao minor. The CBI has also slapped the sections related to Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act, 2012.

The CBI court also recorded the statement of the 18-year-old Unnao gang rape victim under tight security before the magistrate. The statement was recorded under section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC).

Earlier, on April 15, Kuldeep Singh Sengar’s woman aide Shashi Singh had also been taken into a four-day custody by police authorities. Shashi Singh had allegedly lured the victim to Sengar on the day of the crime.

Upset over the rising number of rape cases in the country, ace Indian boxer M C Mary Kom expressed her concern and discontent, saying the present situation had left her feeling “hurt and helpless”.
