In the month of July, a road accident took place, when the survivor met with an accident when she was travelling with her paternal and maternal aunts and lawyer Mahendra Singh were travelling. Two aunts of the survivor had died on the spot. The FIR was registered against Sengar under various sections of the IPC, including for rape, kidnapping, and criminal intimidation as well as under provisions of the Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
