Rapes and murders are nothing new in India. I am not being insensitive, I am just citing the truth and if you think the truth is sensitive to talk about, then we need to introspect!
Trust is a human quality and we entrust our rights in the hands of the elected representatives, to protect us and our rights.
What if the person whom you trust turns out to be a predator? One is sure to feel unsafe and deceived.
This is exactly what happened in the Unnao rape case and the events that followed.
What Is The Unnao Rape Case?
On 4th June 2017, a 14 years old innocent girl of Unnao district in Uttar Pradesh was raped and one of the prime accused in the CBI charge sheet was BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar.
Since then, there have been murders of people connected to the case and the blame of the same has ultimately fallen on the BJP MLA.
What Is The Hue And Cry?
The issue of Unnao rape case took center stage once again, not because justice was delivered but because the rape survivor met with an accident on Sunday and now, she is fighting for her life in the hospital.
The car of the rape survivor was hit by a truck in Raebareilly which killed 2, while the rape survivor and her lawyer are critical. The name of the BJP MLA is linked to this so-called car crash and the media is calling it a conspiracy of Sengar and his brother.
One may think that this is a car accident and it can happen to anyone! But the case doesn’t end here, there is more to it as it is not an isolated incident.
Before this, the father of the victim was killed in jail in 2018 and co-incidentally, the eyewitness to the assault inflicted on the father also died under “mysterious circumstances” in August 2018.
A lot of coincidences, aren’t they?
The quantum of these so-called accidents is the reason why the media houses are convinced that it is Kuldeep Singh Sengar who is behind all these killings.
The same is assumed by the family members of the victim and following their instincts, the family of the rape survivor has lodged a complaint against Sengar and his brother, blaming them for this unfortunate series of events.
These deaths strongly indicate that there is more than what meets the eye and all this undeniably has a connection with the MLA.
However, keeping in mind the principles of jurisprudence followed in India, no wonder Sengar will soon get away with these allegations on the grounds of benefit of doubt.
Someone has rightly said that a rape victim who dies is hailed while a rape victim who survives is humiliated and tortured by the forces of the society.
Perfect Bollywood movie plot, eh?
