Sengar's lawyer said, "We support fair investigation".
The FIR against Sengar was filed on the basis of a preliminary report by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) set up by the state government to look into the case and check the veracity of the charges levelled by the rape victim against the MLA. "Investigation has been handed over to the CBI".
The case has already led to a political slugfest between the BJP and other parties and former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said the people of state are living in fear.
"Naari Virodhi (anti-woman) Adityanath has not only utterly failed in his constitutional duties as the Chief Minister and abused the oath of office but also played an important protagonist in safeguarding the interests of the rape accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar", he added.
Till the premier investigating agency takes over, the local police would continue with the probe, but a decision on whether the accused MLA from the ruling party would be arrested would be taken by the CBI, Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar said.
Besides the MLA, the CBI team grilled six suspended cops, incudling the SHO of Makhi police station in Unnao.
