Unnao

Earlier, the convict was pronounced guilty by Delhi's Tis Hajari court on December 16. The ex-BJP MP is accused of kidnapping and raping a woman in Unnao in 2017. Singh was alleged to have taken the survivor to Sengar on the pretext of helping her get a job.

A rape accused out on bail here allegedly warned the victim against deposing in the court or face consequences worse than the Unnao tragedy, in which a girl was burnt to death recently.

Shortly after Unnao rape victim's death and burial, her sister is now admitted to the district hospital accompanied by police security.

The family of the 23-year-old woman who died on late Friday night at around 11:40 pm after battling for 40 hours at Safdurganj Hospital in New Delhi, performed her last rites by burying her body besides the graves of her grandparents at their ancestral farm in village Hindu Khera, Unnao on Sunday.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday met family members of the Unnao rape victim, who died after being set ablaze, and accused the Uttar Pradesh government of patronising criminals that led to recurrent crimes against women in the state.

As victim's report reads, she died due to Cardiac arrest at 11:40 pm, on Friday. The victim was battling for her life at Delhi's Safdarjung hospital, after she was set ablaze while on her way to a court hearing on Thursday morning. Suffering 3rd degree burns, the 23-year-old Unnao rape victim was airlifted from Lucknow's SMC government hospital to Safdarjung Hospital, on the very same day.

The country is enveloped with happiness as the Hyderabad rape victim's culprits were shot dead in an encounter with the Hyderabad Police.

The 23-year-old Unnao rape victim who was airlifted to Delhi and admitted to Safdarjung Hospital with 90 per cent burns after being set on fire has died, hospital sources said.
