SC to transfer rape case involving BJP MLA out of Unnao

The Court also summoned a responsible CBI officer before it by 12 noon today to provide details of the probe conducted so far in the case. 

The top court also refused a plea of Solicitor General, Tushar Mehta, appearing for the CBI that the matter is adjourned to 10:30 AM on Wednesday, as the officers probing the cases were out of Delhi.

A bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi rejected Mehta’s contention, saying the CBI can gather the information of the cases on the telephone and apprise the bench today.

The bench directed the Solicitor General to ensure the presence of a responsible officer at 12 noon before it to give details on the probe conducted so far in the rape and the subsequent accident case which was taken up as the first item by the top court. 

The court said as both the matters have been transferred to the CBI, it would pass orders in the case later in the day after knowing the details from a responsible CBI officer.

On Wednesday, the court had taken cognisance of the rape victim’s letter to the CJI and had sought a report from its Secretary-General as to why it had not been brought to his notice since 17th July.
