The Unnao rape case, in which a 17-year-old girl was allegedly raped by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, his brother and others at his home in Unnao, Uttar Pradesh has hit another rock on its road to justice.
On Sunday afternoon, the survivor met with a fatal car accident, while she was travelling along with her lawyer and two aunts in Rae Bareli. While the 19-year-old survivor and her lawyer are undergoing treatment at the trauma centre at King George’s Medical University in Lucknow, both her aunts lost their lives, one of whom was a key eye-witness in the case. Following this, on Monday the suspects were booked for "hatching a criminal conspiracy to kill the rape survivor and her family." A police officer informed a news channel that an "FIR has been registered under the Indian Penal Code's sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder), 506 (criminal intimidation), 120b (criminal conspiracy) against 10 named persons, including the BJP MLA, and 15-20 others." The Indian government, on the other hand, is yet to issue a statement regarding the accident.
To refresh your memory, here is a timeline of everything that has happened in regards to this case in the last two years.
Now, an FIR has been filed against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar along with 29 others who are allegedly involved, in a conspiracy to kill the survivor, the eye-witness and the lawyer in a car accident.
