New Delhi: Delhi’s Tis Hazari Court on Friday sentenced expelled Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and six others to 10 years imprisonment for the death of Unnao rape survivor’s father. Sengar is already serving life imprisonment for raping the minor.
While sentencing them, District Judge Dharmesh Sharma said, “There can be no denying that rule of law was broken. Sengar was a public functionary and had to maintain the rule of law. The way the crime has been committed, it does not call for leniency.”
Sengar and his brother Atul has been directed to give 10 lakh compensation to family of the victim for loss of their father. “There are four minor children involved, three girls and one boy. They have also been uprooted from native place,” the judge said.
Seven people, including Sengar, his brother and two police personnel, were held guilty for culpable homicide and criminal conspiracy, earlier this month. (IANS)
