Expelled BJP lawmaker Kuldeep Singh Sengar has been sentenced to ten years in jail and fined Rs 10 lakh in connection with the death of the Unnao rape victim's father.

Six others have also been given jail terms.

Kuldeep Sengar has already been jailed for the "remainder of his natural biological life" in the Unnao rape case.

Last week, a Delhi court convicted him and several others of culpable homicide not amounting to murder in connection with the death of the victim's father in judicial custody.

The court said the evidence proved beyond reasonable doubt that the accused conspired to foist a false case on him by planting a country-made gun and four cartridges.

It said the accused didn't intend to kill him, but beat him "in a brutal manner that led to his death".

The judge said it was common knowledge that when the police hit, "they hit in a brutal manner", and that doctors at the district hospital were "negligent" and "acted like butchers".

In July last year, a truck rammed into a car the Unnao rape survivor was travelling in with some family members and her lawyer. Two of her aunts died.

She was airlifted from a hospital in Lucknow and brought to AIIMS for better care as she was critical.

She's been given accommodation in Delhi and is under CRPF protection.
