Unnao rape accused MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar has been expelled from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The decision to sack the rape accused MLA comes after mounting pressure on the party after an accident killed kin of the Unnao rape victim and injured the victim and her lawyer.
On July 30, the Uttar Pradesh BJP chief Swatantra Dev Singh had said that Unnao rape accused Kuldeep Singh Sengar has been suspended from the party.
The Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi is hearing the Unnao rape case. On Thursday, the SC had directed to transfer all the 5 cases related to the Unnao rape case out of Uttar Pradesh. It has also sought the presence of all CBI officers involved in the cases at 12 noon today to get the status report.
The Chief Justice of India has also directed the CBI to conclude the case within 7 days. The CJI also ruled that the CBI should file a charge sheet in the Delhi court.
The Chief Justice has also asked for the medical report of the victim. Reportedly, the victim is likely to be airlifted to AIIMS in New Delhi for further treatment.
Earlier Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi had pulled up the Uttar Pradesh government and sought full information on the investigations both in the rape case as well as on the accident, in which the survivor and her lawyer are critical, while two of her aunts were killed. “We want a full report,” the Supreme Court said.
The Supreme Court has sought the CBI reports by today noon. The CJI pulled up the CBI and Uttar Pradesh police and refuse to adjourn the hearing in the Unnao rape victim’s accident case.
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.
On Sunday, the victim of the Unnao rape case was travelling to Rae Bareli with her two aunts, and her lawyer Mahendra Singh when their vehicle was hit by a truck, rendering them 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 woman’s family has filed a complaint alleging “conspiracy” behind the car crash.
