Former BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar convicted for death of Unnao rape victim’s father

A Delhi court on Wednesday convicted former BJP legislator Kuldeep Singh Sengar in a case pertaining to custodial death of the father of Unnao rape victim who he raped three years ago.

Out of 11 accused, Kuldeep Sengar and six others have been convicted and four others have been acquitted.

Unnao rape survivor’s father died in custody in April 2018.

The woman was allegedly abducted and raped by Sengar in 2017.

In December last year, the court had sent Sengar to jail for “remainder of his natural biological life” for raping the girl.

The rape complaint, however, was registered only after woman tried to immolate herself outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s official residence in Lucknow.

Sengar, a four-time BJP MLA, was expelled from the party in August 2019.
