Unnao rape survivor accident case: SC grants CBI two more weeks

New Delhi: The Supreme Court today granted two more weeks to the CBI to complete the ongoing investigation into a road accident case in which the Unnao rape survivor and her lawyer have suffered critical injuries.

A bench comprising justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose extended the time for completing the probe after the CBI moved an application seeking four more weeks, on the ground that the statements of the rape survivor and her lawyer have not been recorded so far.

The bench also directed the Uttar Pradesh government to pay Rs 5 lakh to the lawyer, who is in a critical condition.
