The family of the girl who survived in the Unnao rape horror has said that they don’t have sufficient funds to fight the case further and now, they would rely on other sources of crowdfunding.
The Central Bureau of Investigation had booked earlier BJP’s Bangarmau MLA Kuldeep Sengar in the rape case and now the family has said they are not left with any means to fight the case and no male members are there in the family at current moment and no other member earns in the family.
Although, UP police has registered a case of forgery and cheating after the court’s order against the survivor for producing fake documents about her age, in order to prove that she was a minor.
Dinesh Chandra Mitra, posted at the Makhi police station told The Indian Express that “The FIR was lodged on charges including cheating by impersonation, cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property, forgery for purpose of cheating and using as genuine a forged document.”
“Our father died in judicial custody and uncle Mahesh was arrested last month in a separate case. The only male member at home is my 5-years-old brother,” said the sister of the survivor to the Times of India.
She further added that “We all are unlettered, unemployed and have no idea on how to fight this case, Besides, there is fear of stepping outside home. We don’t venture out too much. We don’t have the funds to fight the case. But we will fight it out by taking recourse to crowdfunding or approaching Supreme Court.”
