Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia on Tuesday committed a massive faux pas while tweeting about Unnao rape survivor. "Unnao rape survivor dies today after struggling for life,' he tweeted. However, he promptly deleted the tweet.
"A daughter has not lost the battle, in fact, the entire Law & Order system has lost the battle. Unnao rape survivor dies today after struggling for life for so long. Now it's our turn to fight her justice," Scindia tweeted.
The Unnao woman, who met with an accident on Sunday when a car in which she was traveling along with her family and lawyer was hit by an overspeeding truck in Rae Bareli, is on life support. Her lawyer is also admitted to the Intensive Care Unit where his condition is said to be critical.
Meanwhile, the Allahabad High Court on Tuesday granted one-day parole to Unnao rape survivor's uncle Mahesh Singh to attend the last rites of his wife who was killed in a road accident on Sunday.
The Lucknow bench of the high court directed the jail superintendent and district authorities to ensure that Singh is taken for the cremation at Gangaghat in tight security.
The court directed senior registrar of the high court to communicate the copy of the order to jail and district authorities immediately for compliance.
Justice Mohammad F A Khan directed officials to bring Singh back to the jail by the evening after the cremation. Singh's appeal against his conviction in a criminal case is pending in the high court.
The rape survivor's family members sat on a dharna outside the hospital where she is undergoing treatment, demanding parole to her uncle.
The Unnao rape survivor's family filed a complaint alleging "conspiracy" behind the Sunday's car crash.
Jailed BJP MLA Sengar and nine others were booked for murder on Monday, a day after the car in which the 19-year old rape survivor, her family and lawyer were travelling was hit by a speeding truck in Rae Bareli, killing two members and leaving her and the advocate critically injured.
The Uttar Pradesh government has recommended a CBI probe into the road accident.
