Faizabad: Police has started investigations into the case of Samajwadi Party MLA Anup Sanda, facing charges of attempt to rape, threatening to kill and fraud, following its transfer from Sultanpur to Faizabad police.

On a complaint filed by 25-year-old Samreen Khan, a resident of Gabhadiya locality of Sultanpur city, a case against Sanda under various Sections of the IPC including 376 (rape), 420 (fraud) and 506 (threatening to kill) was filed on September 17, police said.

The Special Investigation Cell of Faizabad police has started the probe today after it was transferred to it on October 8, following a complaint by Khan to DIG (Faizabad) AK Rai, expressing discontentment over the "biased" attitude of Sultanpur police in handling the case.

Additional Superintendent of Police (Faizabad) Sanjay Kumar has been appointed as monitoring officer of the probe being done by the special investigation cell, SP RKS Rathore said today.

Khan had alleged in the FIR that she was being subjected to criminal assault since the past three years by Sanda, who had promised her a job and whenever she had objected to it he had threatened to kill her.

The woman further alleged that the MLA had also promised her marriage and taken her to different places during this period.
