Sengar chargesheeted for falsely framing minor’s father

The Central Bureau of Investigation on Friday filed a chargesheet against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar for falsely framing in an arms case the father of the minor girl from Unnao who accused him of rape.

Nine others were named in the CBI chargesheet, including three policemen — then station officer of Makhi police station Ashok Bhaduria, sub-inspector Kamta Prasad Singh and constable Amir Khan.
