Uttar Pradesh police on Saturday filed an FIR against Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Gayatri Prajapati and 7 others in connection with a gang rape and sexual harassment case.

“FIR has been filed against 7 people including UP minister Gayatri Prajapati over gang rape & sexual harassment case; Probe is on,” said Hazratganj Circle Officer Avinash Mishra.

The Supreme Court had earlier directed the UP police to register an FIR against Prajapati. The apex court had also asked the police file a status report in the case within eight weeks.
