Gayatri Prajapati

On February 20, Prajapati moved the Supreme Court against its order of registering an FIR against him in the rape case.

UP Police on Monday arrested head constable Chandrapal, a co-accused with Prajpati and others for allegedly gangraping a woman and attempting to molest her minor daughter.

Gayatri Prajapati, the rape-accused Uttar Pradesh minister who has been missing for days, failed to get any protection from arrest today from the Supreme Court.

A non-bailable warrant was issued against Prajapati on Saturday after reports started pouring in he may try to flee the country.

It rejected his plea for recall of the February 17 order, observing that the minister can approach the court concerned for appropriate relief.

"Our order is only the registration of FIR, nothing else".

India has made it clear that the flat was being installed 200 metres before the zero line and was not a violation in any manner. A private company will look after the flag maintenance; it has got this maintenance contract for 3 years.

On Friday, police initiated proceedings for a look out notice against Prajapati following reports that he may try to escape overseas to evade arrest. We never ordered arrest. His passport was also revoked for four weeks.

A 35-year-old woman had accused Prajapati of raping her when she met him three years ago.

The apex court had directed the Uttar Pradesh Police to file a status report in the case within a period of eight weeks. He also threatened to release the photos in public if she filed a complaint against him.

Prajapati is contesting the ongoing state assembly elections on the Samajwadi Party (SP) ticket. "Since the government has ordered such probe, I would accept it gladly", Prajapati had told ANI.

A bench of the apex court headed by Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri made it clear that it won't modify its order. In the initial questioning Chandrapal, who was posted with the security wing of the state police and attached to the minister as his official gunner, claimed he was not aware of Gayatri's whereabouts.
