Kuldeep Singh Sengar imprisoned for life

Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who was expelled from the BJP and won the legislative election four times from Bangarmau in Unnao was found guilty of kidnapping and raping a minor

In Unnao rape case, Tis Hazari court of Delhi has sentenced MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar to life imprisonment. He was accused of kidnapping and rape. The court has also asked him to pay Rs 25 lakh within a month. This amount will be given as compensation to the victim. The court has already acquitted Shashi Singh, the co-accused in the case.

Kuldeep Singh Sengar was arrested in April 2018 in the case of rape of a minor. In August last, the matter once again came into the limelight when the victim was seriously injured in a road accident in Rae Bareli, Uttar Pradesh. Two of his female relatives also died in that accident and her lawyer was also badly injured.

Both the cases were investigated by the CBI and after the intervention of the Supreme Court, the case was transferred from a Lucknow court to a Delhi court. The matter was being heard daily since August 5. The court also reprimanded the CBI for late filing of the charge sheet.

Kuldeep Sengar has been a four-time BJP MLA from Bangarmau seat of Unnao in Uttar Pradesh. He was expelled from the party in August after the charges. The same month, the court framed charges against Kuldeep Sengar and Shashi Singh under the Sexual Violence Against Children Act.
