The Supreme Court on Thursday decided to transfer all cases linked to Unnao rape victim from Uttar Pradesh to Delhi.
Moreover, the apex court refused a petition of Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the CBI that the matter be adjourned to 10:30 am on Friday, as the officers probing the Unnao cases were out of Delhi.
The bench has asked for the presence of a responsible officer of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) at 12 pm today to give details on the probe conducted so far in the rape and Sunday’s accident case.
The top court on Wednesday took cognisance of the Unnao rape case and fixed the matter for hearing today along with a report from the Secretary General of the top court, as to why the July 12 letter written by the rape survivor and her family members was not brought to CJI’s knowledge.
CJI Gogoi had expressed his displeasure at the fact that the letter was not placed before him.
In the letter to the CJI, the rape victim and her family members alleged that some people associated with the accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar were threatening to implicate them in fake cases if they did not settle the case.
On Sunday, the rape victim was travelling to Rae Bareli with her lawyer and two aunts when a truck rammed their car.
