Woman attempts suicide outside CM Yogi’s house
LUCKNOW: On sunday a young woman accompanied by her family tried to commit suicide outside CM Yogi Adityanath’s home in Lucknow. The woman said that she was raped by a BJP legislator last year & the police have refused to take any action against him.
The criticized person is Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the BJP legislator from Unnao, and his brother. The woman said that she and her family were threatened after they had filed an FIR. The woman demanded legal action against the MLA at the earliest.
“I was raped. I have been going from pillar to post for one year but no one listened to me. I want all of them arrested otherwise I will kill myself. I had even gone to the CM with no result. When we lodged FIR we were threatened,” the woman told.
BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar talking about this incident said he was being framed by the woman and her family in the rape case.”This is a pre-planned incident. There was an incident in their family, case was registered. The police saved two innocent people, being made scapegoat by them… they haven’t left any platform to defame me. I request administration to probe this and punish the real culprit,” he told.
Rajiv Krishan, a senior police officer in Lucknow, said, “The case has been transferred to Lucknow. Allegations can be proved only after a thorough probe.”
