Allahabad, Aug 12 (ANI): The Allahabad High Court on Friday ordered CBI probe into Bulandshahr gang rape case.

The Samajwadi Party (SP)-led Uttar Pradesh Government had yesterday filed a status report on the investigation into the case before the High Court.

The matter was heard by Chief Justice DB Bhosale and Justice Yashwant Varma after they perused the status report.

The court has taken suo motu cognizance of the gang-rape of mother and her girl on a highway passing through Bulandshahr in western Uttar Pradesh on July 29.

The horrific incident took place when the mother-daughter duo, accompanied by four other family members, was dragged out of their car on the highway and raped in a nearby field.

The incident evoked a huge outcry and the Samajwadi Party Government drew widespread criticism over the law and order situation in the state. (ANI)
