Gayatri Prajapati rape case: Woman's lawyer says witnesses being threatened

Gayatri Prajapati rape case: Woman's lawyer says witnesses being threatened

Let the police investigate and report to us.

Chandrapal, a UP police head constable, is deployed in the security of the minister against whom the Supreme Court recently ordered to file an FIR.

Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik has written to Akhilesh Yadav asking why the chief minister has retained rape-accused minister Gayatri Prajapati in his cabinet. We have not ordered non bailable warrants.

The apex court today refused to entertain Prajapati's plea against its earlier order of filing of FIR against him. If some other court had issued NBW then it is open to you to challenge the same in accordance with law.

The apex court had on February 17 directed the UP Police to lodge an FIR against Prajapati and asked it to submit an action taken report regarding the incidents in eight weeks in a sealed cover.




On Saturday, passport of the rape-accused UP minister was impounded, a look-out notice issued and airports alerted.

Seeking a stay on his impending arrest, Gayatri Prajapati had earlier claimed that the Uttar Pradesh government had not put the facts in the right perspective before the Supreme Court and that false allegations were levelled against him.

Raids have been conducted at various places, including a factory manufacturing incense sticks in Kanpur, to try and locate the minister.

The lawyer of the woman and her minor daughter who have accused Uttar Pradesh minister Gayatri Prajapati of rape and sexual exploitation, on Sunday said his main concern was that his client's family and witnesses were being threatened. Prajapati was sacked by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav a year ago but was later reinstated in the council of ministers. "Serious question of constitutional morality and dignity arise on his remaining in the cabinet", the Governor said in a letter to Akhilesh seeking his "justification on retaining the minister".
