A CBI team investigating charges in the Unnao case against expelled BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar has asked for details of the politician’s visitors in jail. The investigative agency has spurred into action after Supreme Court yesterday gave a seven-day deadline to investigate the road accident in Uttar Pradesh.
The Unnao rape survivor was travelling to Raebareli on Sunday when the car in which she was travelling had a head-on collision with a truck. Two of the survivor’s aunts died in the crash, while the survivor and her lawyer are in a critical condition.
Sengar has been named in the First Information Report on the crash, after the family accused him of plotting the incident to kill the survivor. On July 12, the survivor’s family had written to Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi alleging danger to them from the former BJP MLA and his aides.
Meanwhile, The Supreme Court also halted implementation of its order to transfer the Unnao rape survivor’s car crash case to Delhi after the Central Bureau of Investigation told the judges that it had complicated the agency’s efforts for custodial interrogation of the expelled BJP legislator Kuldeep Singh Sengar and other accused.
The top court’s unusual directive came on a request by the CBI which sought its help to get custody of the Uttar Pradesh MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and others to question them for the car crash that had killed the teenager’s two relatives.
The Supreme Court yesterday, ordered central security for the family and shifted five cases linked to the Unnao rape survivor to Delhi. The court also announced deadlines for resolution of the cases.
