 Unnao Teen's Family Says The  Jailed BJP Leader Threatening Us

New Delhi: Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the BJP lawmaker has been charged by the CBI for raping a 15-year-old in Unnao in Uttar Pradesh, a case in which action was taken only after the girl tried to commit suicide opposite Yogi Adityanath, the Chief Minister of UP's house. The politician, who remains in the ruling party, has been threatening the teen's family and witnesses from jail, a relative has alleged, questioning why the BJP hasn't expelled him.

Here's 10 points to th story:

1. The uncle of Rape survivor questioned, "The CBI has done the right thing but Sengar is still in a party that rules the centre and UP. Why hasn't he been thrown out even after the chargesheet."

2. He said "Witnesses are being threatened from jail. They are told leave the village for one or two years, plan a living there and come back when the case is over...Or you will be killed."

3. The family says the administration has refused to help because Sengar is a BJP lawmaker. "There can't be any justice unless he is thrown out of party," said the relative.

4. A BJP leader was non-committal on any possible action against Sengar and said it was too soon. "We are keeping an eye on developments, We will look into this and take a call depending on what needs to be done keeping in mind the image of the party. The chargesheet has happened just now, we can't take a call so soon," said Dr Chandramohan, BJP spokesperson in UP.

5. Reminded about Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister's recent "bail-gaadi" dig at the opposition Congress, the leaders out on bail, to which BJP leader's response was: "We are not like the Congress. Their senior leaders are out on bail. This MLA is just a regional leader. Is he part of the leadership team?"

6. In April, Sengar was arrested after an outrage over the allegations of the girl, The girl said she was raped when she visited the politician's home for a job in 2017.

7. Nearly a year after her assault, in April, the girl tried to set herself on fire outside the home of Yogi Adityanath.

8. The victim's father kept pursuing her case and died after he was detained by cops and severely beaten allegedly by Sengar's brother.

9. The BJP lawmaker, just like his brother was not charged until the crime made national headlines. He had smiled and bragged on television and said that he and his family would be proven innocent. The CBI's charge-sheet against Sengar contains the charges rape, criminal conspiracy and child sex offences.

10. The BJP and Yogi Adityanath were slammed by the Samajwadi Party over the lawmaker. The party's Juhi Singh said, "The victim and her family are on record talking about intimidation and harassment at the hands of Sengar, and yet the government and Yogi Adityanath is doing nothing. Perhaps the chief minister picks and chooses the criminals he wants to protect and indulges in fake encounters related to the rest."
