The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday filed a second chargesheet naming BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar as an accused in the Unnao gangrape case involving a 17 year old girl.

In its chargesheet, the CBI said that Senger has been charged for rape along with accomplice Shashi Singh, who allegedly stood guard outside the room when the crime happened in June last year, as alleged by the girl. Senger has also been charged under POCSO Act, according to the chargesheet.

As per the investigation, the rape happened between 7 and 8 pm on June 4, 2017.

Last week, the investigating agency had filed its first chargesheet in which it had named five accused, including Sengar’s brother, Jai Deep Singh + alias Atul Singh Sengar.

In its first chargesheet, the agency had charged the accused of murder and other related offences, according to a CBI spokesperson.

A 17-year-old girl had alleged that she was raped by Bangermau MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar of the BJP at his residence when she had gone to meet him with a relative seeking a job last year.
