Unnao rape survivor meets with car crash, condition stable
July 30, 2019
The victim of Unnao rape case, an incident that happened in June 2017, has still not received justice. One of the main accused BJP leader Kuldeep Singh Sengar still roams around free in spite of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) having looked into the case. In a shocking incident, the victim met with an accident on Sunday when the car which she was travelling in was hit by a truck of which the number plates were blackened and erased. Though the girl's condition is reportedly stable, opposition party leaders are adamant on sending her to New Delhi for further treatment. The BJP has been widely criticised for not taking any action in the case.

The victim's father had died in judicial custody some time back, and she is currently living with her mother. Now, the victim's two aunties who were also travelling along with her in the car are dead and her lawyer is seriously injured. Another witness in the rape case was murdered in 2018. All fingers are now pointing at BJP leader and main accused Sengar. But the Uttar Pradesh police have ruled out foul play and said that the incident was just an accident. At the same time, state police have sent a request to the CBI to probe into the accident. This request is yet to be approved by the central government.
Victim's mother said that the accident was aimed at killing the victim, eye witness and her lawyer together.
"NOTHING LESS than an SIT probe for the accident that has left the #Unnao rape survivor (whose father had died in police custody) battling for her life. Remember Ajay Khare, Sandeep Sharma? Meanwhile, media must report with facts. Stationary has now turned into over-speeding", tweeted author Anand Ranganathan.
"This is extremely disturbing. Her mother & lawyer have been killed in the accident. Her father had died in custody. Those who brag of "भय-मुक्त" Uttar Pradesh should tell us about the steps taken to ensure the victim's safety. This is extremely disturbing. Her mother & lawyer have been killed in the accident.
