Samajwadi Party member and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday raised the issue of the Unnao rape victim's road accident in the Lok Sabha but Speaker Om Birla did not let him speak on the incident.

Yadav raised the issue when his party member Azam Khan was asked to tender his apology for his sexist comment against BJP member Rama Devi on July 25 when she was presiding the House.

"Azam Khanji has said what he wanted to say. What about the 'beti' of Unnao? We should also talk about that," Yadav said.

However, Speaker Om Birla did not allow Yadav to speak about the road accident in which the victim sustained critical injuries along with her lawyer. Two of her relatives were killed when a truck rammed their car.

Yadav on Sunday had alleged that it could be a conspiracy to murder the woman who had accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar of raping her in 2017.

The victim was travelling to Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh with her lawyer Mahendra Singh and two relatives. Both survivors have been on life support since the accident.

Yadav also sought a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) enquiry into the accident.
