New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday ordered that Unnao rape accused Kuldeep Singh Sengar be shifted to Tihar jail from Sitapur prison in Uttar Pradesh.
Rape accused Uttar Pradesh MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his accomplice, Shashi Singh were produced before a Delhi court on August 5, in the case pertaining to the rape of a minor girl allegedly by the lawmaker at his residence in Unnao on June 4, 2017.
Both the accused were produced before sessions judge Dharmesh Sharma. Sengar was lodged in Sitapur district jail in Uttar Pradesh and was expelled from the BJP last week. Accused Shashi Singh had allegedly lured the victim into going to Sengar's residence in search of a job.
A few days earlier, Sengar and nine others were booked for murder by the CBI after the rape survivor and the advocate were injured when a truck hit their car in Rae Bareli. Her two aunts were killed in the accident. The rape survivor's family has alleged foul play.
The Supreme Court had last week directed the Delhi court that the trial be held on a daily basis and that it be completed within 45 days.
