Unnao rape victim's family alleges harassment by MLA's goons

Unnao rape victim's family alleges harassment by BJP MLA's goons

Jailed rape-accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Senger's goons are reportedly "terrorising" the victim's family members and have asked them to leave the village.

The uncle of the victim claimed on Sunday that the goons of the legislator and his brother Atul Senger, who is also in jail on rape charges, have been issuing threats to him and his family.

"We have been asked to either keep silent or leave the village quietly," the uncle said in Unnao, about 60 km from here.

He said that the goons of the Senger brothers also made video films when they spoke to the villagers.  

The uncle said that his nephew had been missing for the past four days and apprehended that his life might be in danger.

"We have not been able to contact him since Thursday," he said.

The CBI, which had arrested Kuldeep Senger after the order of the Allahabad High Court and later got his custody for seven days,  is likely to take the lawmaker to Unnao and confront him with the victim.

The victim had said that the lawmaker, his brother and some of their supporters gang-raped her, when she had approached Senger for a job.

The victim had attempted self-immolation near Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's official residence on Sunday in protest against the failure of the police to act against the lawmaker but was prevented by some alert cops.

Six police personnel, including the Makhi station house officer, have been suspended on charges of laxity.

Opposition parties have demanded the resignation of Adityanath on moral grounds.
