The postmortem report of the father of the minor girl from Uttar Pradesh who accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his brother of raping her has revealed that the father died due to shock and septicaemia.
The postmortem report lists 14 injuries including several abrasions, cuts and bruises. The 55-year-old died in the custody of Uttar Pradesh on April 10.
The report states that the man suffered multiple abrasions near the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms and around knee joints. The report has mentioned that death was caused due to blood poisoning by perforation of colon.
Colon perforation can be caused by blunt trauma to the abdomen or by a knife or gunshot wound.
According to an NDTV report, the police said that he was beaten up in jail. SP Chaudhary, Chief Medical Officer of Unnao said, “It is entirely possible that there could could have been a smaller undetected perforation that became larger later.”
Police has already arrested four persons. On April 10, police arrested Atul Singh Sengar, brother of BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, in connection with the death of the victim’s father.
