  • The Bangarmau BJP MLA was detained for questioning by the CBI from his Lucknow residence in the wee hours of Friday.

The Allahabad high court on Friday directed Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to arrest BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who is an accused in the Unnao rape case.

The Bangarmau BJP MLA was detained for questioning by the CBI from his Lucknow residence in the wee hours of Friday.

The premier investigative agency's early morning move came a day after the Allahabad high court came down heavily on the Yogi Adityanath government over the Unnao case, asking it whether it proposes to arrest accused MLA as promptly as it does in other cases.

The court had directed CBI to carry out further investigation in the rape case of the 17-year-old girl strictly in accordance with law and to consider filing of an application for cancellation of bail granted to other accused in the rape case.
