"It is their call if they want to continue living in Unnao or move to Delhi, where the girl's uncle lives", he said.

In a midnight drama that unfolded after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah returned to national capital from Lucknow, the rape-accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar reached the Senior Superintendent of Police's (SSP) office with two dozens supporters in tow.

This morning, Kuldeep Singh Sengar's wife met a top police officer in Lucknow, saying she wanted "justice for her husband" who was being given a media trial. Prakhar Singh, a relative of the accused MLA, has also demanded a narco-analysis test and CBI investigation into the allegations.

"We have full sympathy with the girl, as her modesty was outraged".

"My husband is innocent.I have full sympathy with that girl".

"She has given several versions of the same episode, the dates do not match and there are several complaints and applications that have been given", Kumar said.

Asked about the allegations against Sengar, the DGP said, "Till now these are allegations".

Sangeeta said the media had already declared her husband guilty of raping the woman. "Merely on the basis of charges, why should he resign?"

New Mexico pledges 250 troops to Mexican border
California and New Mexico, the two other states bordering Mexico, have not made public commitments to sending Guard members. His office says guard members will provide air, reconnaissance, operational and logistical support to border patrol agents.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has also asked Additional Director General of Police (Lucknow) Rajeev Krishna to investigate the matter and has promised stern action against all perpetrators.

An SIT probe has also been initiated into the case. The District Magistrate has confined me to a hotel room.

The police have found several inconsistencies in the statement of the 16-year-old survivor which are being looked into.

"We are told we can't go outside, there are guards at every corner. They did nothing", says the man, bruises plainly visible on his face and chest. "(The uncivil treatment of a father who wanted justice for his raped daughter in UP has embarrassed humanity)". The development comes on a day the MLA's brother, Atul Singh Sengar, was arrested in Unnao.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday directed the Home Department to ensure that Special Investigation Team (SIT) visits Unnao district today and gives its first report by evening in connection with the custodial death of rape victim's father. It was also decided that FIR would be lodged against Sengar and other accused in the case. The victim, while speaking to ANI, alleged that BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his fellow accomplices had raped her, but no action was taken.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear a plea filed by a lawyer in the rape case.

"The Congress demanded the dismissal of Uttar Pradesh chief minister, dubbing his government a "Ravan" regime which has failed to protect women".
