In a major breakthrough, rape-accused minister Gayatri Prajapati was arrested on Wednesday morning by the Uttar Pradesh Police in Lucknow.

The Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) had last week arrested two more persons from Noida in connection with this case. Prajapati is accused of raping a woman and molesting her minor daughter back in 2014.

Prajapati, who has been on the run since February 27 after an FIR was lodged against him, had approached the top court for a stay on his arrest. An apex court bench headed by Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri made it clear that it wouldn't modify its order.

Earlier, the Supreme Court had refused to stay the arrest of Prajapati and asked him to approach the concerned court.

The Uttar Pradesh Police had issued non-bailable warrants against Prajapati and six others in connection with the rape charges. Prajapati's passport was earlier revoked for four weeks to prevent him from attempting to flee out of the country.
