Lucknow: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), on Monday, registered fourth case in the high-profile Unnao gangrape case and made BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar's close aide Shashi Singh's son Shubham Singh an accused in it.

Shashi Singh, who is accused of taking the victim to the lawmaker, was sent to 4 days police custody on Monday.

CBI action comes after a written statement of the Unnao rape victim was recorded before a special CBI magistrate on Monday.

The victim, along with her mother, was brought to the court amid tight security where her written statement was recorded, under Section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code, by Magistrate Sapna Tripathi, the official said.

The victim has alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Bangarmau legislator Kuldeep Singh Sengar had raped her after which she had been running from pillar to post to get her complaint lodged but to no avail.

She tried to set herself on fire near the Chief Minister’s residence on April 8 after which her father was picked up by police and beaten up by them, Sengar’s brother and his aides. He later died in custody due to injuries inflicted on him.

Sengar was arrested on basis of a SIT preliminary report. He was presented before a remand magistrate on Saturday and sent to seven days Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) custody.
