Manoj Sengar had been living in Delhi and was taking care of the cases against Kuldeep Sengar. He was a co-accused in the accident case of July 28 in Rae Bareli in which the rape survivor and her lawyer were critically injured while two female relatives were killed.
The rape victim, who was flown from the King George's Medical University in Lucknow to AIIMS in Delhi in a critical condition, has shown considerable progress and has been moved to the ward, officials said.
After the Unnao girl alleged rape by the expelled BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar, her father died in police custody, and uncle was jailed in a 19-year-old arms case. She is now battling for life after a road accident which also claimed lives of her two aunts.
