An FIR has been registered against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, his brother Manoj Sengar and several others in connection with Unnao rape survivor’s accident in Raebareli. Kuldeep has been booked under sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder) and 506 (criminal intimidation). The rape survivor was critically injured after the accident, while two of her aunts passed away.
Doctors at the Lucknow hospital where the teen is admitted, said she has extensive fractures on her ribs, collarbone, an arm and a leg. She is in a critical condition and on ventilator.
At a press conference today, the police said they have arrested the truck driver and the owner. The number plates, the owner allegedly said, were defaced to stop identification of the vehicle as he had defaulted on the payments for the vehicle loan.
The police said preliminary investigations indicate that it was an accident, but they are open to a CBI investigation.
The case made it to national headlines after the girl and her mother attempted to immolate themselves in front of the house of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath last year. The girl’s father, who was arrested and accused of illegal arms possession, died in police custody. Before the arrest, he was beaten up by Atul Sengar and his men. Postmortem report showed extensive injuries.
