The Unnao rape survivor, who had sustained grievous injuries in an accident and was undergoing treatment at AIIMS, Delhi was discharged from the hospital on late Tuesday.
Earlier today, the Delhi court was informed that the Unnao rape survivor is likely to get discharged soon as her health condition has improved. The report was submitted before the court by the Uttar Pradesh Secretary and family members of the victim, who informed the District Judge Dharmesh Sharma about the victim's health asserting that she may be discharged from the hospital soon.
During the hearing, Justice Sharma asked the counsel of the victim to arrange accommodation for the victim and her family in the city and submit its details to the court. The court directed the family of the victim to be temporarily accommodated in the hostel of Jay Prakash Narayan (JPN) Trauma Centre of New Delhi's AIIMS for the next seven days.
The family of the survivor had told the court that they want to shift to Delhi as there is a threat to their lives in their native village.
The matter is slated for next hearing on September 28. The Unnao rape survivor and her lawyer had sustained grievous injuries after an accident on July 28. A truck had rammed into the vehicle in which the Unnao rape survivor, her counsel and two aunts were traveling in. While she and her lawyer were injured, her aunts were killed on the spot.
The Supreme Court of India intervened in the case after the incident and took up measures to ensure the safety of the victim and her family, as well as ensure a fast and fair trial of the accused. It had then asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to complete the investigation into the road accident. The apex court, which had earlier given two weeks to the CBI to complete the probe, extended the time while noting that the probe agency has done 'extensive investigation'.
BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar is accused of raping the girl at his residence in Unnao on June 4, 2017, where she had gone seeking a job.
In July end, BJP UP State President Swatantra Dev Singh said that Sengar was suspended from the party a long time back. The statement came after opposition members accused the ruling party of protecting him.
