Parliament LIVE: The Unnao rape survivor’s accident, which left two of her relatives dead, will resonate in Parliament today as the Congress has given a notice to discuss the incident and the ‘lawlessness’ in Uttar Pradesh. On Sunday, the victim was travelling with her family to meet her uncle who is serving a life term at a Rae Bareli district jail when they met with an accident. While two of her aunts succumbed to their injuries, her lawyer, who was driving the car, was grievously injured.

The family has accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who the girl had accused of rape, and his “men” to be behind the accident.

Meanwhile, Samajawadi Party MP Azam Khan is set to apologise for his misogynistic remarks in Parliament on BJP member Rama Devi, who has demanded his suspension from the Lok Saba for five years.

Khan made objectionable remarks against Devi who was presiding over the proceedings in Lok Sabha on Thursday as the house was debating the Triple Talaq Bill. After an uproar and support from a majority of the parties, Khan was directed to apologise in the Lok Sabha for his remarks.
