In a shocking incident, a woman claiming to be rape survivor along with her family attempted suicide outside Uttar Pradesh's Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s residence in Lucknow claiming that the Police has failed to take action against the BJP MP who had raped her.

Talking to ANI, the woman alleged that she was raped by Unnao MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his accomplices last year but is still fighting for justice. She claimed that after filing a Police complaint, her family was threatened but any action against the MP is still awaited.

The victim said, "I was raped. I have been running pillar to post for the last one year but no one is listening to me. I want to see all of them arrested, otherwise, I will kill myself." She added, "I had even approached the CM to no result. When we lodged an FIR, we were threatened."

Media reports suggested that the woman tried to pour oil and set herself ablaze outside Yogi’s residence before being rescued by the Police. She was then taken to Gautam Palli Police Station along with her family where they tried to commit suicide again.

While the MP claimed that the incident was pre-planned to defame him, Lucknow Additional Directorate General of Police (ADG) Rajiv Krishnan has revealed that the two parties involved in the case were in a dispute for several years, revealed the investigation.

The BJP MP said, "This is a pre-planned incident. There was an incident in their family and case was registered. Police saved two innocent people, I am being made scapegoat by them." The ADG confirmed, "The family has accused Sengar of raping her."

He added, "While probing the case, we learnt that both parties were in a dispute for the last 10-12 years." The case has been transferred to Lucknow Police which is investigating the entire situation and any further comments will be made only after the probe is completed.
