A Delhi court on Friday sentenced all convicts including expelled BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar to 10 years in prison for the murder of the father of a woman he raped in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao in 2017.


New Delhi, March 13: A Delhi court on Friday sentenced all convicts including expelled BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar  to 10 years in prison for the murder of the father of a woman he raped in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao in 2017.


The court has ordered Senger and his brother Atul Senger to pay Rs. 10 lakhs each as compensation to the victim's family.



Unnao rape survivor's father died in custody on April 9, 2018.


The woman was allegedly kidnapped and raped by Sengar in 2017 when she was a minor.


The court had, on December 20 last year, sent him to jail for "remainder of his natural biological life" for raping the girl.


The rape complaint, however, was registered only after she attempted to immolate herself outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's official residence in Lucknow.


She took the extreme step after her father was thrashed by Sengar's brother, Atul Sengar.


According to the charge sheet in July 2018, survivor's father and his co-worker were returning to their village when they asked for lift from one Shashi Pratap Singh. He denied it which then lead to altercation.


Singh then called his associates, including Sengar's brother -- Atul and others who beat up the survivor's father.


He was taken to jail instead of the hospital even though he was grievously injured and died two days later in police custody.


The matter came to light after a video clip showing Atul beating the father went viral on the social media.


The court had earlier framed charges against Sengar, his brother, police station's in-charge Ashok Singh Bhadauria, Sub Inspector Kamta Prasad, Constable Amir Khan and six others in the case.


Kuldeep Singh Sengar was recently disqualified from the membership of the UP assembly, following his conviction in the rape case.
