Before the road accident
The woman was allegedly abducted and raped by dismissed BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar in Unnao. She was a minor then, back in 2017. The news grabbed nationwide attention after the survivor and her family tried to commit suicide outside UP CM’s house in 2018. Charges have been fixed against Sengar and co-accused Shashi Singh in the matter. Additionally, Sengar will also be tried for murder charges in the road accident case that happened on July 28. He may have allegedly conspired to kill the survivor along with her lawyer and two aunts when they were driving from Unnao to Rae Bareli. A lorry hit her car, and her aunts died in the collision.
