The top cop of the Uttar Pradesh police came in defence of itself on the issue of Unnao gang rape.
In a press conference, UP DGP OP Singh said that decision on MLA Kuldeep Sengar’s arrest has to be taken by the CBI and not the local police.
He said that since the case has been given to CBI, they will decide on arrest.
The top cop is also known to have added that the MLA has only been accused and not convicted yet.
What stood out in the press conference was that he referred to Sengar as “honourable” but also ensuring that the state administration had no intentions of saving the rape accused.
Earlier today Police SO Rajesh confirmed that an FIR was registered against Sengar.
The BJP MLA has now been booked under various sections of IPC and POSCO Act, it is said.
An officer of the rank of DSP has been suspended for not attending to the repeated complaints of the rape survivor and her family.>
