S P MLA charged with rape may face CBI inquiry

Lucknow: The police gives clean-chit , the Lucknow bench of Allahabad high court finds the action unjustified. It has asked the police to reinvestigate the case. The CBI inquiry may be ordered if the police action is suspect again.

The case is related to a ruling party member of assembly from Sultanpur Sadar constituency Arun Verman and has been hanging fire for the last two and a half years.

He has been charged with rape, along with seven others. A lower court had also ordered a fresh inquiry following complaints by the victim family. As no suitable action was taken in this regard, the family had filed a petition in the High Court.

The police action has been a suspect right from the beginning. The family had lodged a complained in October 2015. Her statement was recorded. But after “ inquiry” it deleted the names of the MLA and some others. Dissatisfied with the action the family approached a lower court and then high court.

The bench headed by justice Sudhir Kumar Saxena has taken a strong exception to the police action and may order a CBI inquiry.
