Search intensifies for absconding SP Minister Gayatri Prajapati

Search intensifies for absconding SP Minister Gayatri Prajapatiā€

Let the police investigate and report to us.

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

The apex court's direction had come on a PIL filed by a woman who had alleged repeated gang-rape by Prajapati and others and sought the court's direction for lodging of an FIR.

A close aide of Uttar Pradesh Transport Minister Gayatri Prasad Prajapati surrendered before the Lucknow Police on the day the Supreme Court refused to grant relief to the SP leader from arrest in a gangrape case. We have not ordered non bailable warrants.

A bench of the apex court headed by Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri made it clear that it won't modify its order. If some other court had issued NBW then it is open to you to challenge the same in accordance with law.

A team from the Uttar Pradesh Police is in the national capital, and will be coordinating with the Delhi police to hunt for Prajapati.

"UP Police Special Task Force has been roped in to trace the elusive minister", he said.

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.

On Friday, the passport of 49-year-old Prajapati was canceled and a look-out notice was issued against him, hours after prime minister Narendra Modi accused SP-Congress of chanting "Gayatri Prajapati Mantra". "Serious question of constitutional morality and dignity arise on his remaining in the cabinet", Naik wrote to the chief minister while seeking "justification on retaining the minister".
