Unnao Rape Case Update: Convicted MLA Sengar Seeks Relief From Delhi HC

Expelled BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar has moved the Delhi High Court, challenging his conviction and life term today (January 15, 2020). 

Earlier, the Tis Hazari court had convicted ex-BJP MLA, Kuldeep Singh Sengar for kidnapping and rape of a minor girl in the Unnao Rape Case which took place in 2017. Sengar has been convicted for rape under the provisions of Indian Penal Code, 1860 and POCSO Act, 2012 for the offence of public servant committing penetrative sexual assault on child.

The Court said that Sengar was a powerful person whereas the victim was a village girl, not from a cosmopolitan educated area which led to delay in filing the case. The judge said that he found her statements to be truthful and unblemished and proof of the fact that she was sexually assaulted and under threat to not complain.
