Bulandshahr gang rape case: SC to continue hearing on Apr. 20

New Delhi [India], Mar. 29 (ANI): The Supreme Court will continue hearing the arguments on the Bulandshahr gang rape case on April 20.

Earlier in December, the apex court had accepted the unconditional apology tendered by Uttar Pradesh Minister Azam Khan in connection with the Bulandshahr gang-rape case.

Earlier, the court lifted its order staying the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the Bulandshahr gang rape case.

The apex court modified its order after the investigative agency, moved to the court asking to vacate its stay on the ongoing probe.

The apex court had in August stayed the CBI probe until the issue of transfer of trail is decided.

The incident took place earlier on the intervening night of 29-30 July when a 35-year-old woman and her daughter were allegedly gang-raped by a group of robbers in Bulandshahr district.

The victims were on their way from Noida to Shahjahanpur with the other family members when their vehicle was stopped near a cycle repairing shop in Dostpur village on NH-9, which connects Noida and Bulandshahr. (ANI)
