‘Kuldeep Singh Sengar Going Through Difficult Times’: BJP MLA From U.P. Sympathises With Rape-Accused MLA
Ashish Singh Ashu said, "Out best wishes are with him. We hope that he will overcome the bad times."
A Bharatiya Janata Party lawmaker from Uttar Pradesh has come out in support of the rape-accused MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar. Hardoi’s Ashish Singh Ashu sympathised with Sengar’s “difficult times” on Friday at a panchayat event near Unnao, the hometown of the now-expelled BJP leader.
Ashu was seen in a video saying, “Our brother Kuldeep Singh could not be here among us today as he is going through difficult times. Out best wishes are with him. We hope that he will overcome the bad times, fight through it and come out of it and be with all of you. Wherever we are, our best wishes are with him.”
Sengar has been jail for over a year for allegedly raping a minor in 2017. Recently, the survivor was the victim of a “road accident” that critically injured her and her lawyer and killed two of her aunts. The circumstances of the accident appear suspicious, and the survivor’s family has accused Sengar and his men of foul play.
