The Uttar Pradesh police have launched a major manhunt to track down rape-accused minister Gayatri Prajapati. Separate teams have been formed to track down the minister who has not yet been removed from the Akhilesh Yadav cabinet.
The Intelligence Bureau has already issued an alert stating that Prajapati may flee the country to avoid arrest. Following this, a high alert was issued at all airports. A non-bailable warrant was also issued against the minister. The police also issued a lookout circular against him apart from revoking his passport for four weeks.
All security agencies have been directed to stay on high alert. Agencies have also been told to be on the lookout for the leader accused of rape. The immigration department has been told not to cooperate with him and immediately inform about his whereabouts.
Prajapati is accused in cases of gangrape and an attempt to rape another woman and her minor daughter.
The minister enjoyed Y-category security and steps were taken to withdraw the same. The police have on the lookout for him ever since the court refused to quash the first information report against him.
