According to a report, the survivor and her family had written a letter to the Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi about fifteen days before the accident. In the letter, the survivor mentioned that she has been facing threat for her life. Gogoi has now asked the court registry to submit details of the letter as soon as possible.
The main accused Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who allegedly raped the survivor, is a BJP leader and has denied any involvement in the case. The victim's family stated that Sengar and his associates have been threatening and harassing them to withdraw from the case.
"Good of Yogi Govt to refer the Unnao accident case to the CBI but this comes after the victim is fighting for her life and her entire family has literally been wiped out. Who will stay back to even see the justice? And will that justice even mean anything?", tweeted political commentor Sonam Mahajan.
