indexNEW DELHI : Gayatri Prajapati, the rape-accused Uttar Pradesh minister who has been missing for days, failed to get any protection from arrest today from the Supreme Court.
The court, on whose orders an FIR or police case was registered against the minister, said Mr Prajapati could go for legal remedies when a non-bailable warrant is issued.

Mr Prajapati’s lawyer had argued that FIRs had been filed but the court had not been informed, so moves to arrest him should be stopped.The court said, “When we passed our earlier order, the UP government lawyer was there. We repeatedly asked him. Now it is taking a political colour.”
For now, the court said, only an FIR had been ordered.”Our order is only the registration of FIR, nothing else. Let the police investigate and report to us. We never ordered arrest. If an NBW (Non-Bailable Warrant) is issued, you have your remedies,” the court told the lawyer of Mr Prajapati, who was last seen in public around two weeks ago.
