A key witness in the attack on the gang- rape survivor’s father died at his Unnao residence on August 18, 2018.
The survivor’s uncle, who is quickly lodged in Rae Bareli jail, had cast doubt about the manner of the witness’s death. But the police claimed that the witness’s family stated that he died due to illness.
The gang-rape survivor’s uncle had said Mohammed Yunus, 32, was the key witness in the charge on the survivor’s father, who later died to his injuries in legal custody when he was sent to jail by the local police after being implicated in a fake case of possession of illegal firearms.
He had claimed that locals in Yunus’s village had expressed the doubt that he was eliminated to help the jailed BJP MLA, his brother Atul Singh Sengar and their aides.
Yunus ran a grocery shop at the same crossing in the Makhi area where the survivor’s father was charged by the lawmaker’s brother and his aides on April 3, 2018.
He said the CBI had filed Yunus’s statement and made him the key witness in the case against the MLA and his aides.
