The court directed senior registrar of the high court to communicate the copy of the order to jail and district authorities immediately for compliance. Justice Mohammad F A Khan directed officials to bring Singh back to the jail by the evening after the cremation. Singh's appeal against his conviction in a criminal case is pending in the high court.

The rape survivor's family members sat on a dharna outside the hospital where she is undergoing treatment, demanding parole to her uncle. The Unnao rape survivor's family filed a complaint alleging "conspiracy" behind the Sunday's car crash.

Jailed BJP MLA Sengar and nine others were booked for murder on Monday, a day after the car in which the 19-year old rape survivor, her family and lawyer were travelling was hit by a speeding truck in Rae Bareli, killing two members and leaving her and the advocate critically injured.

The Uttar Pradesh government has recommended a CBI probe into the road accident. The woman belonging to Makhi police station area in Unnao had alleged that Sengar, a four-time MLA who represents Bangermau in the Uttar Pradesh 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. Sengar, who is an accused in the rape case, was arrested on 13 April last year.

Why it may still be advantage Yogi Adityanath despite minor OBC rebellion in Uttar Pradesh

It would be unwise to jump to conclusions on the basis of the exit of a slew of OBC leaders from the BJP. As of now, the OBC revolt is a small one and has not resulted in an explosion.
