The victim later told media persons that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Thursday statement that the guilty will be brought to book was very reassuring and that she now hoped that justice will be done in her case. The Allahabad High Court also directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today to arrest MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the accused in the alleged rape case of a minor girl past year. "Our government will not compromise on this, no matter how influential the accused is, he will not be spared". I believe the CBI would have arrested the MLA also. Senior party leader and former state minister IP Singh had claimed: "Yogi Adityanath had taken the decision to arrest Kuldeep Sengar".

The chief minister, while speaking on this occasion, announced the setting up 25 special courts to try cases under the SC/ST Act. The Chief Minister had also chose to expel two MLAs from Unnao. Her family alleged that she was raped by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his accomplice a year ago, and no action was taken against the accused.

It may be recalled that a day after the Mahasabha announced to confer the title on the CM, there was a revolt in the organisation against Mahasabha president Lalji Prasad Nirmal 's decision.

Later on Sunday, her father was picked up by the police and allegedly beaten up in custody by the MLA's brother Atul Singh and his aides, following which he died.
