Truck Hits Unnao Rape Victim’s Car – Accident Or Assault?July 30, 2019
The girl from Unnao who had accused BJP MLA Kuldip Singh Sengar of gang rape is in a seriously injured condition today. A truck coming from the opposite side, with blackened number plates, collided with her car. Two of her relatives were killed and she herself and her lawyer were severely injured in this ‘accident’.
This incident appears to be an attack, not an accident.
It should be remembered that the victim’s father had earlier been killed while he was in police custody—and the witness to the father’s killing died under suspicious circumstances. The victim’s uncle is sentenced to 10 years in jail on a false charge of ‘attempt to murder’. Now the victim herself and her lawyer are seriously injured and fighting to stay alive.
There have been similar successive killings or deaths under suspicious circumstances of witnesses and even a judge in the Vyapam scam case, Asaram rape case, Ram Rahim rape case, and the Haren Pandya and Sohrabuddin murder cases, and the Kausar Bi rape-murder case in Gujarat. This is the BJP model; it is this which was the Modi-Shah Gujarat model which has ensconced itself in Uttar Pradesh and, in fact, in the entire country.
The BJP holds rallies in defence of rapists. Under BJP rule, accusing BJP leaders of rape or murder appears to be tantamount to an invitation to death. In Bihar also, minor girl victims in shelter-home rape cases are disappearing.
