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.
