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.
The complainant has alleged that in 2017, Tripathi, the MLA from Bhadohi, and his six accomplices kept her at a hotel for a month and repeatedly raped her, Superintendent of Police (SP) Ram Badan Singh said.
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.
Stressing that this is the normal process followed in such cases, police said posters are issued for the 'kidnapped persons'. They come from the state capital and are sent to all police stations, the official added.
