Allahabad: The Allahabad High Court today
ordered a CBI inquiry into the alleged gang rape of two minor
girls at a police station in Kushinagar district of Uttar
Pradesh by five persons, including four policemen.

A Division Bench comprising Justice Sabhajeet Yadav and
Justice Bala Krishna Narayana passed the order on the writ
petition of Nagina Devi, whose two daughters were allegedly
raped inside the Kubersthan police station of Kushinagar
district on April 19.

The petitioner had accused the then in-charge of the
police station, three constables and a gram pradhan, with whom
her family had a long-standing dispute, of having sexually
assaulted her minor daughters.

Passing the order for CBI probe, the court directed the
agency to complete its investigation and submit its report
within three months.

Earlier, the Superintendent of Police of Kushinagar had
informed the court that all the police personnel named in the
FIR registered in connection with the gang rape have been
placed under suspension.
