unnao rape survivor
“This court does not find any mitigating circumstance. Sengar was a public servant and betrayed people’s faith,” the judge said while declining the plea for lenient approach in sentencing him.
According to the reports, the accused was imprisoned when the girl filed a complaint a few months back. However, he came out on bail and attempted murdering the girl by dousing her with kerosene in the fields outside the village.
A day before, the Uttar Pradesh administration stated that the family desires to relocate to Delhi, apprehending peril in their home state.
The court also ordered for a team of doctors to check the medical condition of the survivor and her lawyer and also to find out if they need to be airlifted to AIIMS Delhi for treatment.
What can be more shocking and shameful than the glaring fact that such despicable crimes and the succeeding events designed to derail the process of justice are being allowed to happen in one of the largest democracies in the world, with a population of 133.92 crores! That too in full view.
“If the person against whom we are complaining comes to know about it, and if we meet an accident, what will happen?” This question was asked by a school girl to UP police officers.
The rape case shot into prominence when the survivor attempted suicide in front of the Chief Minister’s house on April 8, 2018.
