Luckow : It will hard times for ruling Samajwadi Party after Uttar Pradesh Police filed an FIR against tainted senior minister Gayatri Prajapati in connection with cases of alleged gangrape and attempt to rape a woman and her minor daughter.
The apex court had directed the police to book the SP leader. The FIR was lodged under various sections of the IPC and POCSO Act.
The apex court’s direction came on a PIL filed by a woman who alleged repeated gangrape by Prajapati and others and sought the court’s direction for lodging of an FIR.
The alleged incident had first taken place in October 2014 and continued till July 2016 and when the accused tried to molest the minor daughter of the petitioner, she decided to lodge a complaint after her written request to the DGP in October 2016 went unheeded. Since no FIR was lodged, she moved the apex court seeking justice.
