Politics has started now in the gangrape case with a 16-year-old girl in Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh. After the death of the rape victim’s father in police custody, many political parties have targeted the BJP.
The victim had accused the local MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and others of gangrape. The police have arrested the MLA’s brother Atul Sengar on the charge of assaulting the victim. The post-mortem report of the victim’s father confirmed the assault. It has been said in the report that 14 pieces of injuries were found on the father’s body.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi digressed the state government saying, “Save the daughter, kill herself.” On this issue, former State Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said that women are being terrorized instead of criminals in the state. However, the state’s chief minister Yogi Adityanath said this incident is quite tragic and unfortunate. So far 6 policemen have been suspended in this case. Also, the judicial inquiry orders have been issued. The State Government has constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT), which is investigating the matter.
A 16-year-old girl had accused the BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and her companions of rape in June last year. But after the matter came to light, the girl suddenly disappeared, after which the families lodged a complaint with the police. Nine days after the complaint, the girl met in a village of Orenya district, after which she was brought to Unna.
The police presented him before the court and recorded his statement. The victim alleged to the police that she was not allowed to name the BJP legislator in her statement. Ten days later he was sent to the family members, but he continued to accuse the police constantly. The victim and her family came to Delhi but she sent her grievances to the Chief Minister from all the senior officials of the state so that she could register a case against BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar and her brother Atul Singh.
But when there was no hearing from anywhere, in February this year, the victim’s mother approached the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) to file an FIR in this case. On April 3, the court heard the appeal of the victim on the mother’s plea. Unnao returned with the family of the victim to participate in the hearing of the case. According to the family, that evening BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar’s brother, Atul Singh, along with his colleagues, troubled the girl’s father. After this, the police arrested the girl’s father on charges of possessing illegal weapons.
Then on April 5, the victim’s father was sent to jail. The victim’s father accused the MLA’s brother of assault and attempt to implicate him. But no action was taken on their complaint. After this, the victim tried to commit suicide in front of Chief Minister’s residence in Lucknow. He also demanded an FIR be lodged against BJP legislator Kuldeep Sengar, after which the entire matter came up. On April 9, the girl’s father died in police custody.
Yogi Adityanath said this incident is quite tragic and unfortunate. So far 6 policemen have been suspended in this case. Also, the judicial inquiry orders have been issued. The State Government has constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT), which is investigating the matter.
