"Until he comes out of the jail, I will not get justice," she said. "I have been able to emerge victorious in this battle with the help of the media. I am still feeling afraid and there is threat vis-a-vis the Rae Bareli accident. When he (Sengar) can get an accident done despite staying in jail, he can do anything," she said.

She was referring to her allegation that Sengar was behind an accident in which the rape survivor was injured and two of her aunts were killed. She demanded capital punishment for Sengar. Meanwhile, Naveen Singh, son of Shashi Singh expressed happiness over his mother's acquittal.
