The uncle of 17-year-old Unnao rape survivor has alleged that accused MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar's brother Atul has been threatening the witnesses from the jail.
Atul Sengar was arrested by the Uttar Pradesh police for beating survivor's father, which led to his death in custody. But rape survivors' uncle has alleged that on Atul's order, his men have been roaming around in the village and have been threatening everyone to stay away from the case.
