A woman and her family on Sunday attempted suicide outside Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s residence after police failed to take any action against a BJP lawmaker and his accomplices who allegedly raped her.
As per reports from ANI, the family alleged that the woman was raped by Unnao district MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his partners last year, adding that the UP police thrashed the family after they filed a complaint about the incident.
“I was raped. I have been running pillar to post for the last one year but no one is listening to me. I want to see all of them arrested, otherwise I will kill myself. I had even approached the CM to no result. When we lodged an FIR, we were threatened,” ANI quoted the victim as saying.
Reacting to the case, Rajiv Krishnan, Additional Directorate General of Police (ADG) of Lucknow, said, “The family has accused Sengar of raping her. While probing the case, we learnt that both parties were in a dispute for the last 10-12 years.”
“The case has been transferred to Lucknow. The allegations can only be proved after a thorough probe,” Krishnan added.
Meanwhile, the lawmaker had refuted all the allegations made against him, and said, “This is a pre-planned incident. There was an incident in their family, case was registered. Police saved 2 innocent people, being made scapegoat by them.”
