Uttar Pradesh Government has sent a formal request to the Centre for transferring the Unnao rape survivor's road accident case to the Central Bureau of Investigation.

The development comes a day after senior politicians from different opposition parties demanded a free and fair probe into the accident of the Unnao rape survivor and her family.

On Monday, the Uttar Pradesh Police had said the case of the death of relatives of Unnao rape victim in a road accident in which she was also injured would be transferred to the CBI.

The accident took place on Sunday when the Unnao rape victim was on her way to Rae Bareli. A truck rammed into the vehicle in which the girl was travelling with her two aunts and lawyer .

While her aunts succumbed to injuries, she and her lawyer were grievously injured.

The state police have already registered a murder case against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, his brother Manoj Singh Sengar and eight others in connection with the road accident

Sengar is the prime accused in the rape case of the minor girl. He is a BJP MLA from Bangarmau in Unnao and was arrested by the CBI in April last year.

The teen was allegedly raped by the MLA at his residence in Unnao on June 4, 2017, where she had gone seeking a job.

Since after the accident, the Unnao rape survivor and her lawyer are currently being treated at a Lucknow hospital, and their condition is said to be critical. (ANI)
