A teenager accusing a politician of the rape party of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is fighting for life after a car accident that her family says it & # 39; planned & # 39; used to be.
The 19-year-old was seriously injured after a truck hit the vehicle on a state road in Uttar Pradesh on Sunday afternoon.
She traveled with her lawyer and two aunts when their car was hit by a truck, killing her two family members and her lawyer was seriously ill at the hospital.
Her family claims that the accident & # 39; planned & # 39; was trying to eradicate them & # 39; & # 39; and stop the lawsuit.
In July, teenager Kuldeep accused Singh Sengar of the ruling Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) of kidnapping and raping her for a week.
The alleged victim accused Sengar of attacking her in June 2017 at his home in the Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh.

The girl and her lawyer remained in critical condition and two of her aunts were killed in a collision between a car and a truck on a highway in Uttar Pradesh
The police in the notoriously lawless state refused to take action when her family reported rape.
The woman's family said the crash was a deliberate attempt to kill her, so that the rape case is not on trial.
After the traffic accident, the girl's mother accused Sengar employees of orchestrating the crash and demanded justice.
She told me Times of India: & # 39; It was not an accident, but a conspiracy to eliminate all of us. The son of a co-defendant in the case, Shahi Singh, and another youth from the village had threatened us. They said they will treat us. & # 39;
But police chief O.P. Singh said the crash seems to be purely a traffic accident & # 39 ;.
He said the truck was speeding, but refused further comment while an investigation continued.
The girl, her lawyer and two family members, traveled to Rae Bareli jial to visit her uncle, who is imprisoned in an unrelated case.
Kuldeep Singh Sengar was accused last year of raping a teenage girl. Sengar was detained after intensive interrogation last April

A team of three police officers was assigned to protect the girl and her family, but accompanied her at the time of the accident.
Police chief inspector MP Verma said an investigation will be launched into the absence of police officers.
The driver of the truck was arrested and the police said the license plate had been painted over.
The leader of the main opposition Samajwadi party of the Uttar Pradesh state, Akhilesh Yadav, said the incident according to the Hindustan Times & attempted murder & # 39; could be.
Delhi committee for female chairman Swati Maliwal visited the victim and her family.
She said: we will fight for the girl to get justice. The family claims that the accident was a conspiracy. & # 39;
In April, almost a year after her alleged attack, the girl tried to set herself on fire outside the home of Uttar Pradesh leader Yogi Adityanath in an attempt to get justice.

The prime minister ordered an investigation into the crime and the case was transferred to federal investigators.
The girl's father, who continued to follow her case, was detained by the police and severely beaten. He later died of his injuries.
Priyanka Gandhi, a leader of the opposition congress party, said the accident & # 39; shocking & # 39; was and wondered why Sengar was still a member of the BJP.
The case has put India's horrific report on rape in the spotlight. According to official figures, nearly 40,000 cases are reported every year.
Campaigners say the actual number is higher, with victims wary of filing cases because of social stigma and a lack of confidence in investigators.
