The Congress leader attacked the BJP over the road accident in Uttar Pradesh on Sunday in which the Unnao rape survivor was critically injured when she along with her family and lawyer were travelling and hit by an over-speeding truck in Rae Bareli.
Two of her family members were killed in the accident while the survivor and the advocate were critically injured.
A woman belonging to Makhi Police Station area in Unnao had alleged that BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar, a four-time MLA who represents Bangermau in the UP Assembly, raped her teenage daughter at his residence in 2017.
The case had come to light after the victim allegedly attempted self-immolation outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s residence.
