The report said that Shubham is the son of Shashi Singh, the man who allegedly lured the woman to Sengar’s residence. 

The woman had alleged Sengar had raped her when she was a minor in 2017. The current CBI charge sheet states that the three men rape her three weeks after Sengar raped her. 

While Sengar is in jail, the woman was recently released from hospital after being critically injured in a car crash. Her family has alleged that the car crash was not accident but a planned effort by Sengar and his accomplices to kill the woman.

The woman’s father, two aunts and one witness have all died suspiciously since she accused Sengar of raping her.

The woman’s father died on April 9, 2018 while in judicial custody. He was framed in an arms case and was reportedly assaulted while he was in custody.
