Woman panel issues notice to BJP leader
New Delhi: The National Commission for Women on Thursday issued a notice to BJP MLA Surendra Singh who came in defence of his colleague Kuldeep Singh Sengar who is accused of allegedly raping a minor girl from Uttar Pradesh's Unnao district.
"I am speaking from psychological point of view, no one can rape a mother of 3 children. It is not possible, this is a conspiracy against him (Kuldeep Sengar). Yes, maybe her father was thrashed by some people but I refuse to believe rape charge," Surendra Singh, who is BJP MLA from Bairia, was quoted as saying by agency on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, UP Police chief also drew sharp criticism after he referred to Sengar as 'mananiya vidhayak ji' during a press conference on Thursday. In defence, Singh said that the Sengar is an MLA and not a convict.
"The respect that is being given to the accused is because he is an MLA… he is not a convict so far. Only a
charge has been levelled against him and the case is being handed over to the CBI for investigation. The CBI will now decide whether he has to be arrested or not on the merit of the case," he said.
