Don't mix politics with Prajapati case: SC

Minister for transport in Akhilesh cabinet, Gayatri is facing arrest after a non-bailable warrant was issued against him in cases of alleged gang-rape and attempt to rape a woman and her minor daughter.

Prajapati had on February 20 moved the Supreme Court against its order of registering an FIR against him in connection with a gang rape and sexual harassment case.

The Supreme Court yesterday had refused to stay the arrest of absconding Prajapati and asked him to approach the concerned court. The court added that for now only a FIR has been ordered.

However, the apex court expressed unhappiness over the order on lodging FIR against the minister being given a political colour and called it "unfortunate".

Seeking a stay on his impending arrest, Gayatri Prajapati had earlier claimed that the Uttar Pradesh government had not put the facts in the right perspective before the Supreme Court and that false allegations were levelled against him.

March 7 (ANI): A day after the Supreme Court refused to stay the arrest of absconding rape-accused Uttar Pradesh Minister Gayatri Prajapati, the Samajwadi Party on Tuesday called on the tainted minister to surrender and offer his resignation as soon as possible. A look-out notice was issued against Gayatri following apprehensions he might flee the country and his passport was also suspended.

Earlier, the apex court had directed the Uttar Pradesh Police to file a status report in the case within a period of eight weeks.

"UP Police Special Task Force has been roped in to trace the elusive minister", he said. Prajapati was sacked by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav previous year but was later reinstated in the council of ministers.
