New Delhi, July 11 (IBNS): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday named Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lawmaker Kuldeep Singh Sengar as accused in the chargesheet of Unnao gangrape case.

Sengar has been booked under Sections 363 ( kidnapping), 366 (abducting and inducing a girl), 376 (punishment for rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) as well as relevant sections of the stringent Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO Act).

The BJP lawmaker from Unnao was arrested by the CBI in April.

Amid massive protests nationwide, Sengar was detained by the probe agency from his residence in Lucknow city for raping a minor in Unnao town of Uttar Pradesh.

The minor girl had alleged that she was raped by Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the BJP legislator from Unnao, and his brother last year, but the police had earlier refused to take any action against them.

On Apr 8, the rape victim along with his family tried to commit suicide in front of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence in Lucknow.

She also claimed that her family was being threatened after they tried to file an FIR.
