The Delhi High Court on September 6, 2019, has approved recording of statement of the Unnao rape survivor at the trauma centre of All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS).

A notification to this effect was issued by the Delhi High Court informing that the victim’s testimony shall be recorded by the District and Sessions Judge, Tis Hazari Court, Dharmesh Sharma in the premise/building of the Trauma Centre of AIIMS in addition to the Tis Hazari Court in the Unnao rape case as well as its related cases.

The Notification was issued after Supreme Court asked the Delhi High Court to set up a temporary court at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi for the purpose of recording the statement of the Unnao rape survivor who is undergoing treatment in AIIMS after she met with an accident.

In the road accident, the victim and her lawyer sustained serious injuries, while two of her aunts passed away.

Foul play on the part of BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar - the accused in the rape case - was alleged by the mother of the victim. Sengar has been in prison since last year following Allahabad High Court order to arrest him in the alleged rape case. The High Court had directed that the investigation of the case be handed over to the CBI.

After the road accident, the victim and her family wrote to Chief Justice of IndiaRanjan Gogoi asking for protection. Pursuant to this, the apex court on August 1, 2019, transferred the trial in four cases relating to the Unnao rape case to Delhi and ordered that the same be held on a day-to-day basis and completed within 45 days.

A Bench of Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose on September 6, 2019, directed the CBI to complete within two weeks its probe and file the charge sheet in the road accident case, in which the rape survivor was injured.
