A Delhi Court on Wednesday found expelled BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar guilty of causing death of Unnao rape victim's father, reports PTI
District judge Dharmesh Sharma of the Tis Hazari Court has held Sengar, along with six others, guilty of culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
The court observed that Sengar did not intend to kill the victim's father. However, he was beaten so brutally that he succumbed to death.
The rape victim's father was allegedly framed in an illegal arms case and arrested on April 3, 2018. He died while in judicial custody a few days later, on April 9, 2018.
The trial in the case was fast-tracked after being transferred to Delhi from UP on orders from Supreme Court.
Four accused have been acquitted in the matter.
Notably, Sengar has already been found guilty in the rape case and has been sentenced till the end of life. That order of conviction was also passed by District judge Dharmesh Sharma who had clarified that life imprisonment will mean "imprisonment for the remainder of his natural or biological life" in terms of Section 376(2) of IPC.
