Unnao Rape Case: CBI court sends Shashi Singh to 4-day custody

Unnao Rape Case: CBI court sends Shashi Singh to 4-day custody

"The two BJP ministers were misled by a few people", Bharatiya Janata Party MP and spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi told the media here.

"All lives matter. Lives of the people on both sides of the ideological divide". CBI officials said they would question the MLA at length and would take him to Unnao to reconstruct the scene of the crime and to collect evidence against him.

Ministers Chaudhary Lal and Chander Prakash had submitted resignation to the BJP state chief on Friday. "They have made it amply clear that they neither took any step to hamper investigation nor tried to save any of the accused". Sources also said the PM rejected the ministers' defence that they had attended the protest organised by the Hindu Ekta Manch against the so-called frame-up in order to defuse tension as thousands had turned up for the protest at Hiranagar on March 22.

"The BJP passed a resolution on April 1 condemning the incident of rape".

"When our policemen are killed fighting militants in Kashmir and when they kill militants, the same people call them patriots".

"And all this while ignoring the strict action being taken by the state governments". Even às the girl's father died in police custody and girl attempted self immolation in front of the Chief Minister's residence, the accused MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar continued to roam free for almost a week.

Even the reaction of the normally tweet-happy Prime Minister Narendra Modi was a case of too little too late, coming as it did only on Friday evening, three full days after the incident had started gnawing at the collective conscience of the nation from Kashmir to Kerala.

The BJP leader also accused the opposition of politicising the rape of girls in Kathua and Unnao. "On Saturday night, about a dozen of youths riding two different SUV reached the village and threatened the villagers to leave the village either or keep mum when the police quiz them", he alleged.

"We arrested the second person, a woman named Shashi Singh, in our ongoing investigations of the case on Saturday", R.K. Gaur, a CBI spokesman, told AFP on Sunday.

"Time has come to fully retrieve the people of the State from the morass, with their honor and dignity intact, through a series of confidence building measure", Ms. Mufti said.

The third case pertains to the allegations against the victim's father, who was arrested by the police under the Arms Act and put in jail, where he died.

"This pressure is being built by those who are heading the Bar Council and Bar Associations".

"Tassaduq Mufti's statement is that Kashmir issue is a political issue and that we could not follow the agenda of the alliance".

During the investigation, the police arrested the caretaker and alleged he was the mastermind behind the kidnapping, rape, and killing of the girl from a nomadic tribe.

The party has drawn up a panel of candidates who could replace Ganga and Singh in the state cabinet if a probe finds them guilty of leading the "protest against own government", sources added. The government also suspended the Unnao Deputy Superintendent of Police.
