Addressing a press conference here, Congress Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said: "The Unnao rape victim cried for justice and pleaded with Yogi Adityanath for eight-nine months. However, the Yogi government did not budge because the MLA was protected by him."
On Tuesday, the Uttar Pradesh Crime Branch arrested Sengar's brother Atul Singh Sengar on the charge of assaulting the 16-year-old girl's father last week after she had filed a rape complaint against the MLA.
The girl's father Surendra Singh died on Monday.
