Bulandshahr gang-rape: Minor victim moves SC seeking FIR against Azam Khan

Bulandshahr, Aug 13 (ANI): The minor victim in the Bulandshahr gang-rape case on Saturday moved the Supreme Court demanding that FIRs be registered against Uttar Pradesh Cabinet Minister Azam Khan and the erring police officials.

The other demands of the minor victim include the transfer of this case to New Delhi, a court-monitored probe, security and rehabilitation.

Earlier this month, the Samajwadi Party leader kicked up a controversy with his insensitive remarks suggesting that this incident of gang-rape could be a political conspiracy against the Uttar Pradesh Government.

Khan received a flurry of criticism for his comments from the opposition parties, women's groups as well as the victim's family members.

The Allahabad High Court had yesterday ordered a CBI inquiry into the Bulandshahr gang-rape case observing that it was "not satisfied" with the police investigation so far.

The High Court, which had taken suo motu cognizance of the July 29 incident, also said it intended to "monitor the investigation into the case".

A division bench comprising Chief Justice D.B. Bhosale and Justice Yashwant Varma passed the order a day after the state government submitted a status report on the investigation into the incident in a sealed cover.

The incident had taken place when six members of a Noida-based family were travelling to Shahjahanpur in western Uttar Pradesh.

At the National Highway passing through Bulandshahr, their car was stopped by criminals, who dragged the 13-year-old girl and her mother out and raped them in a field nearby. (ANI)
