A 19-year old girl who went to an MLA’s Unnao home to seek a job in 2017 was sexually assaulted by a four-time legislator who represents Bangermau in the Uttar Pradesh assembly – Kuldeep Sengar has been in prison for more than a year over the alleged rape.
On Sunday, 28.July.2019, the teen victim, along with her two aunts and a lawyer was heading to Raebareli when a truck had rammed into the car they were traveling in. They were going to meet her uncle who is lodged in a district jail there.
What more has strengthened the speculation of the accident being a pre-planned murder is the blacked-out number plate on the truck that rammed the survivor’s car.
The rape victim and her lawyer are now in the hospital battling death at King George’s Medical University (KGMU) Trauma Centre in Lucknow.
This case became a national headline when the rape survivor attempted self-immolation outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s residence asking for justice.
The father of the victim had died in police custody, arrested for allegedly possessing illegal arms. Before the arrest, he was beaten up by Atul Sengar, the brother of Kuldeep Sengar, and his men. Atul Sengar has also been arrested and accused of murder.
Frustrated with the harassment, the survivor’s mother urged the Uttar Pradesh police to take up her case.
Constant complaints of threats by the survivor’s mother were heard by the people in the village which both the survivor and the MLA are residents of.
The police personnel in charge of the security of the Unnao rape survivor had informed jailed BJP legislator Kuldeep Sengar of her movements, the First Information Report filed a day after her accident notes. The teen who was raped in 2017, allegedly by the legislator, met with an accident on Sunday in Raebareli when her car crashed headlong with a speeding truck. The girl, who sustained massive injuries, is fighting for her life at a hospital in Lucknow. Two of her aunts, who were in the vehicle, died in the accident. Her lawyer was also injured, and is undergoing treatment.
Speaking to reporters on Monday, the girl’s mother said the son of a co-accused in the case, Shahi Singh, and another youth of the village had threatened them. “I have got to know that the lawmaker got it done. He is doing everything from inside jail,” she also said.
The police said they will investigate the claims.
