Who complained against the survivor and her family?

The FIR against the survivor and her kin was registered on the complaint of one Haripal Singh. Haripal's wife Shashi and son Shubham were named as accused in the FIR lodged in connection to the rape case.

The mother and son were arrested, along with Sengar, but Haripal claimed they were falsely framed.

After finding substance in his plea, the court ordered an FIR.

Allegations

Understanding the allegations on the rape survivor

In his application, Haripal claimed that the survivor had an affair with a man named Awadhesh Tewari. They had eloped in September 2017, he alleged.

He claimed that the survivor's family pressurized Shashi to get Shubham married to her when she returned.

When the mother-son duo rejected the proposal, the victim's family falsely framed them, Haripal alleged.

He leveled other allegations as well.

They apparently used fake signatures and stamp of the principal and Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSA) of Rae Bareli district, Haripal claimed.

Confirming the FIR, Station House Officer (SHO) of Makhi police station Dinesh Mishra said a probe would be conducted to ascertain the authenticity of documents.

The case

The Unnao rape case had sparked outrage in the country

The horrific case came to light in April this year. The victim alleged she was raped by Sengar and his accomplices in 2017.

Despite complaining to the police, no action was taken against the accused. Upset with this, the victim tried self-immolation outside the residence of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

Later, UP police had handed over the case to CBI.
