He also said that a Special Investigation Team has been formed to look into all allegations in the case where a woman has alleged gangrape by Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his accomplices. “Special Investigation Team (SIT) formed to probe all allegations related to Unnao matter. Investigation is being done and action will definitely be taken,” Kumar added. The man had died in police custody on Monday.

“When the patient was brought here, his intestine had been damaged due to a colon rupture and hence he contracted an infection. Due to this, he went into shock and later passed away. As per our investigation, cause of death is shock and septicemia due to peritonitis and ascending colon perforation,” said Chief Medical Officer (CMO) SP Chaudhary. Speaking to Zee News, he said that there were 14 injury marks on the man’s body and that he could have been saved had he been brought to the hospital in time.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Uttar Pradesh police arrested BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar’s brother Atul Sengar along with three others in connection with the case. However, he victim questioned as to why the MLA was snot being arrested by police. “Kuldeep Singh (Sengar) isn’t being arrested. I don’t know if his brother is arrested. I demand that they be hanged till death. They’ve made my life miserable. I want justice. They killed my father,” the alleged rape victim said.

The alleged rape victim’s father died in police custody on Monday, a day after his daughter and other family members attempted suicide in front of the Chief Minister’s residence in Lucknow. The family of the man alleged that he had been murdered by the BJP MLA and his accomplices inside the police station. “I was raped. I have been going from pillar to post for one year but no one listened to me. I want all of them arrested otherwise I will kill myself. I had even gone to the CM to no result. When we lodged FIR we were threatened,” the rape victim had said.
