The BJP Thursday expelled party MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who is accused of raping a woman in Unnao. The expulsion comes days after the Unnao rape victim and her lawyer were critically wounded and two of her relatives were killed in a mysterious road accident.

Sengar, and nine others, including the son-in-law of a UP minister, have been booked by the CBI on allegations that they orchestrated the accident that has left the woman in a critical condition. The FIR came hours after the rape survivor’s mother termed the incident a conspiracy to “wipe out her family”.

The Opposition had been cornering the government in Parliament and outside over Sengar’s continuance in the party. Earlier, this week, the BJP had claimed that Kuldeep Sengar had been suspended in April 2018 when the CBI probe was ordered into the rape case. But at least two party office-bearers seemed clueless about the action initiated against Sengar.
