With Gayatri Prajapati still missing, co-accused surrenders before police

Tracy FergusonMar 08, 2017

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.

The FIR was filed recently following a directive of the Supreme Court.

The court, on whose orders an FIR or police case was registered against the minister, said Mr Prajapati could go for legal remedies when a non-bailable warrant is issued. "It is unfortunate." When his lawyers objected to the complaint being frivolous, the SC said it was matter of investigation.

Further, the court directed that if Prajapati is arrested, he can approach a concerned court for seeking bail.

A bench headed by justice A K Sikri also made it clear that its order is just related to registering of FIR and the court is not monitoring the case per se.

The court's observation came on Prajapati's plea for recall of its order for lodging an FIR against him.

ADG (Law and Order) Daljit Chaudhary said efforts have been intensified to track down the minister against whom a non-bailable warrant has been issued.
