The circumstances of the accident have become even more suspicious after the FIR, filed against Kuldeep Sengar, revealed that the police, deployed for the security of the Unnao rape survivor, had informed Sengar and his associates about the family’s movement to Rae Bareli on Sunday.
“Arrangements be made for the best treatment of the lawyer of the Unnao rape survivor, her family be given immediate financial assistance and her uncle be released on 1-month parole from jail so that he can look after the family,” demanded the UPCC.
The BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar is accused of raping a 16-year-old at his house in 2017. She tried to set herself ablaze outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s residence on April 8, 2017, claiming inaction in the investigation of the rape case.
