New Delhi: The CBI, which recently filed chargesheets against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar in connection with the Unnao rape case, may file another probe report related to the destruction of evidence by the accused.

According to sources in the agency, “Even after filing its second chargesheet in the case, the CBI may file another probe report pertaining to the destruction of evidence in the case.” The agency sleuths are still investigating the case, they added.

The CBI recently filed another chargesheet against Mr Sengar in a case of allegedly framing Unnao rape victim’s father under Arms Act. Along with him nine others, including the then station house officer of Makhi police station Ashok Singh Bhaduria, sub-inspector Kamta Prasad Singh, constable Amir Khan, brother of the MLA Atul Singh Sengar, were also named in the chargesheet, filed before a special CBI court in Lucknow. Four other accused were also charged by the agency.

Mr Sengar is a four-time MLA from Bangarmau, a semi-urban area nearly 70 km from Lucknow, and enjoys immense clout in the area.

Earlier this week, the CBI filed a chargesheet against the MLA in the rape case while his brother Atul and four others have been charged with beating up the victim’s father which later led to his death. The girl’s father was booked by the local police on allegations of brandishing a country-made pistol and put in prison when he filed a case this year to bring Sengar to book on April 4. He was allegedly beaten up by the brother of the MLA and his aides.

The CBI charged the MLA, his brother, policemen and five others in IPC Sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy), 166 (public servant disobeying law, with intent to cause injury to any person), 167 (Public servant framing an incorrect document with intent to cause injury), 193 (producing false evidence), 201 (destruction of evidence) among others.
