UP CM Yogi Adityanath must be sacked for 'shielding' rape accused: Congress

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was felicitated with the title of "Dalit Mitra" on the occasion of 127 birth anniversary of Dalit icon Dr BR Ambedkar here on Saturday. "Investigation has been handed over to the CBI".

Lalji Prasad Nirmal, who heads the Ambedkar Mahasabha, said that Mr Adityanath was conferred the award because he had ensured photographs of Dr Ambedkar in all government schools, police stations, government offi-ces and courts.

The CBI registered three cases on April 13 against accused Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar in connection with the case.

She also said that the arrest of Sengar, the legislator from Bangarmau, was also a positive development.

The Allahabad High Court has already appointed an amicus curiae and directed the Yogi Adityanath government to file all details related to the case.

Singh also said, "Those who are raising a hue and cry are shedding crocodile tears for women.Those who held a candlelight march last night should remember that the "tandoor case" had taken place during their government and what all were done by their men". "If this is the stand you are repeatedly taking, then we will be forced to observe in our order that "law and order has collapsed in the state".

Prior to this, on April 3, the rape victim's father was allegedly thrashed by the accused MLA's brother, Atul Singh Sengar, for refusing to withdraw the FIR over the rape and was arrested the same day.

The teen, from Uttar Pradesh's Unnao district, had accused the MLA and his associates of raping her in June 2017.

She also urged that there should be no victim shaming in the rape and murder cases. The 2nd is in rioting, in which 4 people have been taken into custody.
