Unnao case: CJI seeks report on threat letter to victim's family

Unnao case: CJI seeks report on threat letter to victim's family”

According to LiveLaw, the court also transferred the trial of all the four Unnao cases out of Lucknow to Delhi, while also asking the UP government to pay a compensation of Rs 25 lakh to the victim's family by Friday.

SC has assigned a special judge to conduct day-to-day trial.

India's Central Bureau of Investigation said on Wednesday that it was investigating Sengar for possible involvement in a vehicle crash on Sunday that critically injured his 19-year-old accuser and her lawyer and killed two of her aunts. While bench sought the presence of a "responsible" investigating officer before it, the court was informed that the officers were in Lucknow.

The court has also asked the survivor's lawyer to ask her family whether they would like her to be shifted to AIIMS in Delhi by an air ambulance.

It will however pass the order in this regard after receiving instruction from their family members.

With the opposition accusing the ruling BJP of shielding its lawmaker, the Bharatiya Janata Party expelled Kuldeep Sengar from the party today.

"What is happening in this country", the Supreme Court remarked during court hearing.

The woman is battling for her life after a weekend auto crash in her northern home state of Uttar Pradesh that police are investigating after her family said they were being targeted. While she and her lawyer sustained grievous injuries, her aunts were killed on the spot.

The affair has become an embarrassment for the BJP, which is also in power in Uttar Pradesh and has been accused of inaction over the case.

The CBI has meanwhile filed an FIR against the son-in-law of UP's agriculture minister for murder and conspiracy. Arun Singh claimed on Wednesday that he was being framed.

The CBI move comes after the Centre on Tuesday handed over the probe into the truck-car collision to the CBI.

Carrying placards demanding justice for the woman, dozens of protesters representing women's organisations accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi's BJP of shielding the legislator and police of delaying his prosecution.

However, the woman's family said on Monday that it feared for its safety and had received threats over the rape case. Her tweet in Hindi carried the hashtag "Unnao ki beti"(the daughter of Unnao).

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has also registered a FIR against 20 other unknown persons. Jaya Bachchan, who is part of the Samajwadi Party, also joined the politicians.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is now looking into the case while the young girl continues to battle for life. "Very Sad", she said.

Her house, which is just 100 metres from Sengar's home, was surrounded by a large number of police personnel. The Unnao rape survivor and her lawyer, who is being treated at King George's Medical University are stable, the hospital said on Wednesday. The Supreme Court has asked the CRPF to provide security at a safe place near Rae Bareilly.

There was no immediate comment by Sengar who is in jail awaiting trial, but he has previously denied the rape allegation.

They had been threatening to kill the entire family if the case against him was not withdrawn, he alleged.
