It should be noted that social media had earlier reported Unnao witness death and how Yunus, a CBI key eyewitness, was buried hurriedly without getting his post-mortem done.
The investigating agency had made Yunus its main witness in the brutal thrashing of victim’s father by BJP MLA’s brother Atul Singh Sengar and four others, which resulted in his death in police custody.
Yunus owned a general merchant shop in Makhi village of Unnao and had witnessed the assault on victim’s father.
Villagers said that Yunus suddenly fell ill on Saturday and passed away within an hour even before he could be taken to the hospital for treatment. The family members buried him without even informing the CBI and the police.
Victim’s uncle suspects foul play in Yunus’ death. He said that he may have been poisoned to death by the BJP MLA’s men. He demanded that the body of Yunus be exhumed and a post-mortem be conducted to ascertain the cause of death to rule out foul play.
The victim’s family alleged that BJP MLA’s henchmen have been threatening witnesses and villagers to stay away from the CBI and not to give any statement against Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his brother.
The victim’s family said that they will also move an application in the High Court in this regard during the next hearing of the case. The family is also not happy with the tardy progress in the case.
