New Delhi:

In a major development, the Uttar Pradesh government on Thursday handed over the Unnao rape case, where Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar is prime accused, to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

On the basis of reports submitted by SIT to the state government, FIR has been registered against the MLA from Unnao.

Two doctors, namely Dr D.K. Dwivedi and Dr Prashant Upadhyay, have been suspended and disciplinary proceedings have been initiated against three other doctors “for laxity in giving proper medical care to the victim's father, both prior to judicial custody and on referral from jail to the district hospital while in judicial custody”, according to an official statement.

Meanwhile, Safipur Circle Officer Kunwar Bahadur Singh has also been suspended for negligence in handling the repeated complaints given by the victim.

In a late-night development on Thursday, BJP MLA Sengar appeared outside Lucknow SSP's residence.

“I came here to show to the media that I am not on the run, and I am very much in Lucknow. I am here, tell me what to do,” Senger said.

Singh is accused of raping a 16-year-old girl from Unnao, which took place last year in June.

Since then, the family attempted to file an FIR against the accused numerous times but were thwarted by the police.
