The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is facing challenges in establishing the location and presence of former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar with the crime location where he allegedly raped a 17-year-old girl in Unnao.
This after technology giant Apple told a Delhi court that it has no details of Kuldeep Singh Sengar’s location on the day of the crime which could have been very crucial for the case. The counsel for Apple Inc told the court that it had no data regarding the location of Kuldeep Singh Sengar who was using an iPhone, lawyers related to the case said.
According to the rape survivor, on June 4 in 2017, she was taken to Kuldeep Singh Sengar’s residence by her aunt on the pretext of getting her a job but after reaching the residence, she was raped by the ex-MLA between 8-8.30 pm. However, sources say that two calls were received from Sengar’s phone at 8.03 pm and 8.29 pm and the locations of both the calls were different from the crime location.
According to sources, Kuldeep Singh Sengar’s second phone could have helped in establishing the location of the ex-BJP MLA for which a petition was filed before the court.
However, in a reply, Apple informed the court that they do not have the GPS location of the phone hence it can’t be shared. Now, it’s a challenge for the CBI to establish the allegations made by the rape survivor.
The other location of Kuldeep Singh Sengar, on the same day, around the time of the alleged crime, has been found in Unnao and Kanpur. According to sources, in the evening on June 4, Sengar was in Shuklaganj of Unnao for a Ganga aarti which is 17 km from the scene of the crime and later, he was in Kanpur to attend a public function.
