FIR against accused BJP MLA, 10 others

Tuesday, 30 July 2019 | PNS | Lucknow

Swinging into action after sharp criticism from all corners  and strident demands from opposition for probe into the road accident in which the Unnao rape survivor and her lawyer received grievous injuries, the Uttar Pradesh government on Monday registered a murder case against 11 persons, including Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, his brother and henchmen, charging them with hatching a criminal conspiracy to kill the victim and her family members.

The FIR was registered at the Gurubuxganj police station in Rae Bareli district on Monday afternoon under sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder), 506 (criminal intimidation), 120b (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code against 11 named and 15-20 unnamed persons.

The FIR has been registered on a complaint filed by Mahesh Singh, uncle of the rape victim who is presently in Rae Bareli jail in a attempt to murder case.

Besides MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the other accused in the FIR include MLA’s brother Manoj Singh Sengar, Vinod Mishra, Haripal Singh, Naveen Singh, Komal Singh, Arun Singh, Gyanendra Singh, Rinku Singh  and advocate Awadhesh Singh.

The rape survivor’s uncle alleged that the MLA got the car hit on Sunday.

“I am sure that the car was hit for killing all of them by the BJP MLA and his men,” he said in his complaint.

Mahesh Singh alleged he was transferred from Unnao prison to Rae Bareli jail as part of a conspiracy.

“I had requested officials to keep me in Unnao jail otherwise my family members will be killed on way when they come to Rae Bareli to meet me...” he alleged.

Mahesh Singh has sought a 72-hour parole for attending the cremation of his wife, who was killed in the accident.

Sengar, a four-time MLA who represents Bangarmau in the UP assembly, was arrested in 2018 in connection with a rape that took place in 2017.
