NEW DELHI: The CBI filed its first charge sheet today against the brother of Unnao BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and four others in connection with the killing of a person, whose daughter was allegedly raped by the lawmaker, in prison, officials said.

A 17-year-old girl has alleged that she was raped by Bangermau MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar of the BJP at his residence when she had gone to meet him with a relative seeking a job last year.

 She had been running from pillar to post and even tried self-immolation in front of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's official residence alleging police inaction.
