Unnao (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Aug 2 (ANI): District Magistrate Devender Kumar Pandey on Friday said that the arms license of Unnao rape accused Kuldeep Singh Sengar has not been suspended because it is a judicial matter.
"Suspension of arms license is a judicial action. There is a procedure that needs to be followed. We have already filed a report on the suspension of Kuldeep Singh Sengar's arms license. A decision will be taken after hearing in the court," Pandey said.
According to information, Sengar has three arm licenses in his name, one each for a single barrel gun, a rifle and a revolver.
"A hearing on the matter is scheduled in the court today," the DM added.
Sengar, a legislator from Bangermau in Unnao district, had allegedly raped the teenage girl at his residence in Unnao on June 4, 2017, where she had gone to seek a job.
He was arrested by the CBI last year and is lodged in Sitapur district jail. Another case was filed against him after the rape survivor met with an accident recently. (ANI)
