Unnao rape case: SC orders CBI to conclude the accident probe within 7 days, trial court to hear the case daily

Earlier today, the BJP expelled MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the prime accused in the 2017 rape case.

The Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi has delivered an order to transfer of five cases from Unnao rape case and accident to a competent court in Delhi.

According to the reports, the Supreme Court has also directed the Central Bureau of Investigation to conclude the investigation relating to the accident in the next seven days. The trial court to hear the case on a day to day basis and complete the same within 45 days, said the CJI-led Supreme Court bench.

The Supreme Court bench also asked the victim’s counsel to take the opinion of the victim’s family with regard to shifting of the victim to a hospital in Delhi. The Amicus Curiae should also seek a similar opinion from family victim’s lawyer who was also injured and is in hospital in Uttar Pradesh.

The Supreme Court has also directed the CRPF to provide the security to the victim’s family and the lawyer of the victim.

The Supreme Court ordered the Uttar Pradesh government to provide an interim compensation of Rs. 25 lakh to the victim and her family.

Earlier in the day, Unnao rape accused MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar was expelled from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The decision to sack the rape accused MLA comes after mounting pressure on the party after an accident killed kin of the Unnao rape victim and injured the victim and her lawyer.

The Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi is hearing the Unnao rape case. On Thursday, the SC had directed to transfer all the 5 cases related to the Unnao rape case out of Uttar Pradesh. It had also sought the presence of all CBI officers involved in the cases today to get the status report.

Former BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar is the prime accused in the 2017 high profile rape case. The case pertains to an alleged rape committed by Sengar and his plot to silence the victim and intimidate her relatives by framing them in police cases based on flippant charges.

On Sunday, the victim of the Unnao rape case was travelling to Rae Bareli with her two aunts, and her lawyer Mahendra Singh when their vehicle was hit by a truck, rendering them critically injured. The vehicle collided with a truck going in the opposite direction towards Lalganj in UP. The victim is now battling for her life.

Two of her aunts were killed in the accident while her lawyer also sustained serious injuries.
