The Unnao rape survivor’s family has demanded a probe into the accident that left her critical and killed two of her relatives. They have alleged that the rape accused MLA Kuldeep Sengar is behind the accident that happened in Rae Bareli on Sunday.

The state DGP has said that the government was willing to order a CBI probe into the incident as parties, cutting across political lines, attacked the Yogi Adityanath government over the incident.

Here’s a look at what all has happened in the case so far:

· The Uttar Pradesh government is ready for a CBI probe into the accident of the Unnao rape victim, who had accused BJP legislator Kuldeep Sengar of rape, if a request is made, Director General of Police O P Singh said on Monday.

· The survivor was provided with three security guards but they were not accompanying her as there was no place in the car, the DGP said.
