The Unnao rape survivor who had been battling for life in the trauma centre of King George's Medical University was flown from Lucknow to Delhi in an air ambulance on Monday evening for treatment in AIIMS following a directive by the Supreme Court earlier in the day.
Two green corridors were created in Lucknow and Delhi to ensure speedy transfer of the survivor, who was critically injured along with her lawyer in an accident on July 28 when her car was hit by a truck in Rae Bareli. The air ambulance landed in Delhi from Lucknow airport at 9 pm.
A Delhi court Monday directed that expelled BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, accused of raping a minor girl at his residence in Unnao in 2017, be shifted to Tihar jail here from the Sitapur prison in Uttar Pradesh, and decided to hear arguments on framing of rape and other charges against him and others on August 7.
The apex court transferred four criminal cases from Uttar Pradesh to Delhi — the 2017 rape case; a fake matter under the Arms Act against the father of the rape survivor; his death in police custody, and the gang rape of the woman.
The Supreme Court had last week directed to hold trial on a daily basis and completing it within 45-days along with a direction to all media houses not to disclose the identity of the victim directly, indirectly, or in any manner.
