Bulandshahr gang rape case: Supreme Court lifts stay on CBI probe

By on Thursday, September 08, 2016

The Supreme Court which had put on hold the CBI investigation into the Bulandshahr gang rape case lifted on Thursday its order into the incident.

The top court modified its order after the investigative agency, on Tuesday, moved to the court asking to vacate its stay on the ongoing probe.

The top court had in August stayed the CBI probe until the issue of transfer of trial is decided.

The Supreme Court had issued a notice to the Uttar Pradesh Government and senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan over the Bulandshahr rape survivor's plea seeking a transfer of the case out of the state.

Khan had earlier hinted at a political conspiracy behind the gang-rape of the mother-daughter duo in Bulandshahr.

The incident took place earlier on the intervening night of 29-30 July when a 35-year-old woman and her daughter were allegedly gang-raped by a group of robbers in Bulandshahr district.
