The family members of  Yunus, a key witness in the Unnao rape case who died under mysterious circumstances recently, allegedly attempted suicide outside the residence of Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath in Lucknow on Saturday.

Yunus, a key eyewitness in Unnao gang-rape and murder case, involving BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, was buried hurriedly without a post-mortem after he died under mysterious circumstances.

The kin of the deceased attempted self-immolation outside chief minister's house after their attempt to meet the latter proved futile. 


Earlier during the day, the district administration decided to exhume the body of the deceased Yunus for conducting a postmortem.

Yunus, belongs to the village as the Unnao rape victim, died mysteriously. He was the key CBI witness in the case. 

Yunus' burial without post-mortem was widely criticised. Even Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter to criticise Prime Minister Modi saying Is this your idea of “justice for our daughters”, Mr 56?
