Mere moments after a video was accessed showing the Unnao rape victim's father lying injured on a stretcher and having his fingerprints taken instead of being given medical assistance, Republic TV has now accessed a four-minute telephonic conversation between the rape-accused MLA and the victim's uncle where he's the former is making threats.
The audio conversation, the authenticity of which Republic TV hasn't independently ascertained, begins with the victim's uncle apparently accusing the rape-accused MLA of beating up people in the village. Following that, Kuldeep Sengar accuses the victim's uncle of publishing pamphlets against him, which the victim's uncle denies, saying he only forwarded them.
"In a fight, both sides suffer", Kuldeep Sengar said to the victim's uncle, later asking that nobody do anything further and move on.
Following the audio conversation coming to light rape-accused MLA Kuldeep Sengar denied making any threats and called the phone conversation fake.
Earlier on Tuesday, Republic TV had accessed the post-mortem report of the victim's father which had revealed that he had suffered fourteen different injuries on various parts of his body, particularly his back and abdomen, as a result of which he had passed away in the early hours of Monday. A day later, rape-accused MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar's brother Atul Singh Sengar was arrested by the Lucknow crime branch, allegedly for beating up the rape victim's father.
Before that, on Sunday, the victim had attempted to self-immolate in front of Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath's residence in Lucknow alleging that she had been raped by the BJP MLA and his accomplices.
Sengar dismissed the entire incident and even insulted the victim and her family, saying they were 'low class'.
