In the middle of efforts to arrest the rape charge accused Uttar Pradesh minister Gayatri Prajapati, Non-Bailable Warrants were issued by the police against him and six other persons on Saturday. The passport of the Minister has also been revoked for four weeks to prevent him from fleeing the country and a lookout notice has also been issued to him. The Uttar Pradesh police yesterday searched for the minister and conducted raids in Kanpur.
Gayatri Prajapati is becoming a major humiliation for the Samajwadi Party as all the rival parties, especially BJP, accusing the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav of protecting his minister. The minister has not seen since 27 February. The Uttar Pradesh Police took the action on the same day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused the alliance partners Samajwadi Party and Congress of reciting “Gayatri Prajapati Mantra”. In the meantime, yesterday all the airports and exit points across the India were put on high alert to prevent from the absconding minister from attempting to flee the country.
This alleged offense started from the October 2014 and was repeated till July 2016, but when the accused minister tried to assault the minor daughter of the victim then she wrote a complaint to the state DGP on October 2016, demanding the officer to take some action on the accused. According to the Intelligence Agencies, the accused minister of Samajwadi Party who is also contesting the Uttar Pradesh legislative assembly elections from Amethi is playing to flee from the country to rescue from getting arrested. The ADG (Law and Order) Daljit Chaudhary told PTI “Passport of rape accused minister Gayatri Prasad Prajapati has been impounded.” He also added that the Uttar Pradesh police will approach the Ministry of External Affairs to get the Passport canceled.
Mr. Chaudhary said Non-Bailable Warrants (NBW) had been issued against the Prajapati and six others in connection with the case of alleged gang rape of a woman and attempt to rape her minor daughter. He also said that to ensure the arrest of the accused minister, the special Task Force of Uttar Pradesh police has been roped, especially to prevent him from fleeing the country. The Prime Minister Narendra Modi also took a jibe on the minister and the Samajwadi Party earlier at an election meeting in Jaunpur by saying, “In this Country, when we do something good, we chant the Gayatri Mantra. But, the SP-Congress alliance is chanting the ‘Gayatri Prajapati Mantra’. “A case has been registered against him, but the chief minister went to campaign for him while the accused minister was present there. Now, the police cannot trace him,” PM Modi added. “A daughter is seeking justice and the chief minister is shielding the gunhegaar (guilty). What bigger plot can there be than this that in Uttar Pradesh when a buffalo goes missing, the government runs to find It,” said PM Modi.
According to the Official sources, a letter of cancellation (LC) will soon be opened against Prajapati and all airports have been alerted to prevent the SP Minister from escaping the Country. The letter of cancellation is a technical term helps in alerting the immigration authorities about any possible move by the suspect to leave the country. The Uttar Pradesh Police have registered the FIR against the SP Minister Gayatri Prajapati for allegedly gang-raping a woman and molesting her minor daughter with his aides. It looks like that in the coming days the minister would be caught by the Police or the accused will surrender himself to the police.
