Unnao rape case

The Uttar Pradesh Police filed a case of murder against the expelled BJP MLA and nine others in connection with the accident. Probe in the case was transferred to the CBI on Tuesday after which the investigative agency registered a case in connection with the rape survivor's accident in Raebareli.

The survivor and her lawyer were critically injured, while her two aunts died, in an accident that is now being probed by the CBI as the kin had alleged that BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar was behind the conspiracy to kill the girl. Sengar is also accused of raping the girl in 2017.

"Taking into account the ground stated in transfer petition, and letter to the CJI, we order the transfer of all the cases from the CBI court in Uttar Pradesh to Delhi," the Apex Court said.

The decision came after BJP received flak over Sengar's role in the accident in which the victim and her lawyer were seriously injured while two of her aunts lost their lives.

The investigation is going on in the Unnao case and hence it is not proper to comment on the issue. It is not good to not to raise our voice fearing that we will not get justice. We should always seek legal course for getting justice."

The Uttar Pradesh Police had earlier filed a case involving murder and other charges against the legislator and nine others in connection with the accident. The accident took place on July 28 when the Unnao rape survivor was on her way to Raebareli. A truck rammed into the vehicle in which she was travelling with her two aunts and a lawyer.

Sengar is the prime accused in the rape case of the minor girl. He is a BJP MLA from Bangarmau in Unnao and was arrested by the CBI in April last year. The teen was allegedly raped by the MLA at his residence in Unnao on June 4, 2017, where she had gone seeking a job
