Police has suspended six of its personnel, including station house officer of Makhi and five constables, and arrested Senger's brother Atul Singh and four of his aides - Baua, Vineet, Shailu and Sonu. The man, who was arrested by the police last week following complaints by the attackers, died in custody on Monday.

The petition, filed by advocate Manohar Lal Sharma, sought the court's direction to the CBI to probe the alleged kidnapping and rape of a minor girl in July a year ago "by the BJP MLA and his companion and custodial death of her father via torture" on April 9.

Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the Bharatiya Janata Party MLA who is in the eye of a storm for the alleged rape of an 16-year-old girl last year, came to light in 2002 when he was elected as an MLA from Unnao on a Bahujan Samaj Party ticket.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has also asked Additional Director General of Police (Lucknow) Rajeev Krishna to investigate the matter and has promised stern action against all perpetrators. We are being mentally harassed. No evidence has been presented yet, and he's already being called as a rapist.

The SIT will submit an interim report to the government on Wednesday evening.
