On Monday, Delhi’s Tis Hazari Court ordered to shift rape accused Kuldeep Singh Sengar and co-accused Shashi Singh to Delhi’s Tihar Jail. Both of them are in jail for their involvement in the much-publicised Unnao rape case.
According to the reports, the Unnao rape accused MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his accomplice Shashi Singh were produced before Delhi’s Tis Hazari court on Monday amid tight security after the court issued production warrant against them on Friday. The court had also issued warrants against the other accused in the case for their presence on Tuesday.
Last week, the Supreme Court had transferred all cases from Uttar Pradesh to Delhi, while ordering interim compensation of Rs 25 lakh for the victim and CRPF security cover for the victim and her family including their lawyer.
The Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had asked the CBI to expedite the probe into the accident case and complete it within seven days and not later than 14 days.
Former BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar is the prime accused in the 2017 high profile rape case. The case pertains to an alleged rape committed by Sengar and his plot to silence the victim and intimidate her relatives by framing them in police cases based on flippant charges.
Last Sunday, the victim was travelling to Raebareli with her two aunts, and her lawyer Mahendra Singh when their vehicle was hit by a truck, rendering the victim and her lawyer critically injured. The vehicle collided with a truck going in the opposite direction towards Lalganj in UP. The victim is now battling for her life.
Two of her aunts were killed in the accident while her lawyer also sustained serious injuries. The CBI has later taken up the investigation into the car crash too. The victim’s family had alleged that they were being pressurised by Sengar’s men. and the car crash was orchestrated by Sengar himself.
