The decision to handover the case to the CBI was taken late on Wednesday, hours after the BJP MLA made a dramatic appearance before the police but refused to surrender.

#WATCH Kuldeep Singh Sengar, BJP MLA from Unnao against whom a woman leveled rape allegations, rules out resignation.

"I have heard that the same girl had filed a false rape case against a man some years back, because of which the man had to spend six months in jail", Singh added.

The autopsy report revealed that the father died to septicaemia. She is a zilla panchayat head in Unnao, a post she won in 2015 while her husband was with the Samajwadi Party.

Singh said three of the accused, including the MLA's brother, have been arrested.

Sources said the BJP leadership had advised UP government to recommend a CBI probe in the case, especially because of the alleged rape and custodial death of the victim's father.

The case sparked new headlines after the girl's father on Monday died of injuries reportedly sustained while in police custody. The incident triggered a political storm and public outrage in the state.

Late on Wednesday night, the state government chose to hand over the probe to the CBI.
