Unnao rape convict Kuldeep’s wife on BJP’s panchayat poll candidates list
The Uttar Pradesh BJP has given a chance to the wife of former BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar, who was sentenced to life imprisonment for raping a 17-year-old girl in Uttar Pradesh.
Unnao rape convict Kuldeep:
Kuldeep Sengar, a four-time BJP MLA from Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao district, was arrested in 2017 for allegedly cheating and gang-raping a 17-year-old girl on the pretext of getting a job. But justice for that woman did not come so easily.
More than a year after the FIR was registered against Kuldeep, the woman’s family is on their way to Unnao for a court hearing when her father, Kuldeep’s brother Atul Singh, and his accomplices brutally assault her in broad daylight. Uttar Pradesh police are registering an FIR against five persons in the name of the complaint. Atul, the main culprit, was not prosecuted due to his influence.
One year later, in 2018, the girl’s father was arrested for illegal possession of firearms. Condemning this, the woman sought to set fire to the house of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in front of her seeking justice for herself. Meanwhile, the girl’s father died in police custody.
In a way, the UP government had registered a case against Kuldeep for abduction and rape under the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act and transferred the case to the CBI. The CBI has indicted Kuldeep and his accomplice Sashi Singh in a rape case.
The crime of raping a girl in 2017, the arrest of the woman’s father in a fake case with the help of police officers, and the crime of brutally beating him to death in police custody, four counts of attempting to rape the woman again within a week of the first incident Kuldeep Singh Sengar has been arrested under the charges and is currently lodged in jail as a life sentence.
Panjayat election ticket for Kuldeep’s wife:
The 2021 local body elections will be held in Uttar Pradesh from April 15. The list of candidates was announced by the Election Commission yesterday. The BJP government has given a chance to Sangita Sengar, wife of former BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, to contest in Fatehpur Chaurasi.
In an interview with ANI, BJP MP Shiv Pratap Shukla said, “I think the UP BJP government has given Kuldeep Sengar’s wife a chance to contest the elections after the debate. Kuldeep Sengar’s wife was the head of the district panchayat Unnao. If he is welcome in that constituency, he should not be approached as the wife of a criminal. ” He said.
