Authorities, on the other hand, claimed that both the parties have been involved in the dispute for more than a decade.
“They alleged that Kuldeep Singh Sengar raped her, no action was taken and they were beaten up by the other party. On further probe it was found that both parties are in a dispute since 10-12 years,” said Rajiv Krishan, ADG Lucknow.
The case has been transferred to Lucknow, he added
"Allegations can be proved only after a thorough probe,” added Krishan.
According to reports, the woman tried to set herself ablaze outside Yogi's residence and then later at the Gautam Palli Police Station.
Meanwhile, Sengar claimed the entire incident was planned to trap him.
“This is a pre-planned incident. There was an incident in their family, case was registered. Police saved 2 innocent people, being made scapegoat by them,” said Sengar.
“These people thought I helped them and they haven't left any platform to defame me. I request the administration to probe this well and punish the real culprit,” he added.
