Kuldeep Singh Sengar, a four time BJP lawmaker accused of raping the Unnao teen survivor was expelled by the BJP after public outrage. The lawmaker is also accused for threatening the girls family and committing murder.
BJP’s move comes after days after the Unnao rape survivor and her lawyer were critically wounded and two of her relatives were killed in a car crash on Sunday involving a speeding truck that had its number plate painted black. The girl is still critical and on the ventilator, a hospital said today in its latest update.
BJP spokespersons, and senior leaders were confronted with questions for not acting against the lawmaker.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is currently investigating the case.
The Unnao rape case has twisted itself into a classic case of collusion between the Government/Administration as the cops did not register her complaint until she went public last year. She protested outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s Lucknow home and threatened to set herself on fire if she was not heard.
The day after her protest at the chief minister’s home, her father mysteriously died in custody.
The BJP’s action to expels the lawmaker comes 14 months after Kuldeep Singh Sengar was arrested, which by itself proves the kind of power the man held over his bosses and the party.
