On Thursday morning, when the rape victim started out from Unnao to Raebareli, the accused persons stopped her en route, doused her in kerosene and set her ablaze. One among those who sprayed kerosene on her is the rape accused.

The victim belongs to Unnao, while the rape took place in Raebareli. The victim has alleged that during the rape, a video of the incident was also made.

Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has attacked the Uttar Pradesh (U.P.) government on the deteriorating law and order situation in the state.

She has tweeted, “Yesterday, the country’s Home Minister and U.P. Chief Minister clearly lied that the law and order situation in U.P. has improved. It causes indignation to see these incidents taking place daily. BJP leaders should now stop fake publicity.”

U.P.’s Unnao district has been in the news earlier too for heinous crimes like rape. In 2017, a minor girl had accused erstwhile BJP MLA Kuldip Singh Sengar of raping her. However, the victim had to make several efforts before U.P.’s Yogi government took action in the case. At present, the case is being dealt with by the CBI and Sengar is in prison.
