The woman, who had accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA, Roshanlal Verma's son Manoj Verma, of sexually assaulting her on Wednesday claimed that she has been receiving death threats.

Roshanlal is MLA from Shahjahanpur's Tilhar constituency.

According to the lawyer of the victim, Avdhesh Singh, "Goons barged into the victim's residence and threatened her to withdraw her complaint, saying they would kill her if she didn't step back. The victim, who is demanding justice from past five years, had also urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to ensure action against the accused.”

Last month, another BJP leader Kuldeep Singh Sengar was accused of a rape in Unnao.

The incident grabbed attention when the alleged victim made an attempt to commit suicide outside Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi’s Adityanath's residence. ANI
