The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday arrested Bangarmau BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who was booked by the UP police on Thursday following nationwide furore over rape allegations levelled against him by a 17-year-old minor in Unnao.

Officials said Sengar, who was brought to the CBI's office on Naval Kishore Road in Lucknow about 5 am, was taken into custody after intense questioning for 16 hours by a team of investigators.

Earlier this week, Singh had also defended his party MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar in the Unnao rape case.

On the other hand, another CBI team comprising of around five members, went to Unnao and met the family of the survivor, holed up in a hotel by the authorities. The UP Government told Allahabad High Court that they could not trace out any solid evidence because of which Kuldeep Singh Sengar was not taken into custody.

Frustrated with the alleged police inaction on her complaint and coercion from influential people, the victim had attempted self-immolation in front of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence on April 8.

However, the CBI re-registered the FIRs lodged by the UP police and grilled the MLA (who is yet to be arrested).

The accused MLA had then visited Adityanatah in Lucknow. Sengar is likely to be produced by the CBI in court on Saturday. In the interview given to The Indian Express, the victim mentioned the relationship between the two families and those incidents, and he allegedly gang-raped with her past year.

However, as the murder charge against Atul was added later by the police, the second FIR does not reflect in the CBI's FIR.

The Uttar Pradesh government had referred the matter to the CBI which registered the case after getting reference from the centre last night.

The girl has alleged that her 55-year-old father was thrashed by the lawmaker's brother Atul Singh and arrested by the police because he was determined to pursue the case. According to the post-mortem report, he had suffered serious injuries.
