As Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi sought a report from the Supreme Court Secretary-General on why the Unnao rape victim’s letter was not brought to his notice, the CBI Wednesday filed an FIR against Uttar Pradesh BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, and nine others, including the son-in-law of a UP minister, on allegations that they orchestrated the accident that has left the woman in a critical condition.

Listing the Unnao matter for Thursday, CJI Gogoi, heading a bench with Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose, remarked that it was “unfortunate” that the woman’s July 12 letter did not reach him earlier. Senior advocate V Giri brought the Unnao matter to the court’s notice.

Days before she was critically injured and her two aunts killed in a road accident, the Unnao woman, who has accused Sengar of sexual assault, had written a letter to the CJI, and other UP authorities, stating that she faced threats by the accused in the rape case.
