New Delhi: Expelled BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who is a key accused in the 2017 Unnao rape case, was brought to the AIIMS on Wednesday to record a statement of the rape survivor in a temporary court set up here. He was brought along with co-accused Shashi Singh.
District judge Dharmesh Sharma arrived at the temporary court for recording the statement. He had on Saturday given directions for setting up a temporary court at the Jai Prakash Narayan Apex Trauma Centre, AIIMS, where the woman is presently admitted following an accident on 28 July, after the high court gave him permission on Friday.
The high court had on Friday issued a notification to this effect from the administrative side, which said special judge Sharma, who is conducting trial of the cases, shall record her testimony. The woman, allegedly raped by Sengar in 2017 when she was a minor, is battling for life after a truck rammed into her car in Uttar Pradesh's Rae Bareli on 28 July, killing two of her aunts. Her lawyer was also injured in the accident.
