The CBI on Saturday booked BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar for allegedly being part of a conspiracy to falsely implicate the Unnao rape victim’s father in an Arms Act. The rape victim’s father died on April 9 in judicial custody. A CBI official said call records of the complainant and policemen posted at the police station where the case was lodged suggested they were in touch with the MLA on April 3, the day the case was lodged.

A CBI court Saturday sent the Bangarmau MLA to two days’ police remand and the agency plans to question him with evidence they have gathered and the two policemen arrested earlier, said the official.

On Wednesday, CBI arrested former Makhi police station officer Ashok Singh Bhadauriya and SI Kamta Prasad Singh for allegedly framing the rape victim’s father in an Arms Act case and forging government records. They are in a three-day police custody, which ends Monday.

On April 3, an FIR was lodged against the rape victim’s father under different charges, including sections of Arms Act, on a complaint by one Tinku Singh
