New Delhi: Manoj Singh Sengar, young brother of rape-accused former Unnao MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, passed away under mysterious circumstance in Delhi on Saturday. Some reports also suggest that heart attack was the reason behind Manoj's death. He was rushed to a near-by hospital in the national capital around 2 am after he complaint of restlessness and chest pain, but unfortunately died shortly after getting admitted.

Manoj Sengar was in Delhi and was pursuing the case of his brother who is lodged in Tihar Jail at the moment. Family sources said that the body of Manoj would be brought to Unnao on Sunday night and the cremation was likely to take place on Monday.


According to news agency IANS, the Sengar family will seek parole of Kuldeep and Atul Sengar so that they can attend the cremation.

Manoj was among the nine accused in the Unnao rape survivor’s accident case, who battled for life after after a truck rammed into the car she was travelling in with her family members and her lawyer in Rae Bareli district of Uttar Pradesh on July 28. Two of her family member died in the alleged attack while the rape survivor herself was airlifted from a Lucknow hospital to New Delhi's All India Institute Of Media Science (AIIMS) for better treatment.

Supreme Court in August shifted the five cases connected with the Unnao rape case victim to Delhi and assigned a special judge to conduct day-to-day trial. The court had ordered that the trial should be completed within 45 days. A Bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi also awarded Rs 25 lakh as compensation to the victim.

The court granted two weeks to conclude the investigation into the truck-car accident which left the rape victim and her lawyer in critical condition and her two aunts dead.

In Unnao, a 17-year-old was raped last year allegedly by BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar, who has been named in a CBI FIR and was questioned on Friday. The incident came to light after the victim tried to set herself ablaze outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence earlier this year.

The family has alleged that the police refused to file an FIR. The victim's father died after being allegedly beaten by the MLA's brother and aides at a police station. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said such incidents have shamed the country and assured that justice will be done and culprits won't be allowed to escape.
