Lucknow: A Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court on Thursday referred a PIL seeking direction to investigate the alleged role of two top police officers in Banda rape case and Divya murder case to the Allahabad High Court.

A division bench comprising justices Pradip Kant and Ved Pal passed the order after preliminary hearing on the PIL filed by social activist Nootan Thakur seeking a probe into the role of UP Director General of Police (DGP) Karamveer Singh and Special Director General Brijlal in the two cases.

As similar cases are being heard in Allahabad, the court ordered that the PIL should also be taken up there by a division bench.

BSP MLA Purshottam Naresh Dwiwedi and his three aides were arrested for allegedly raping a minor dalit girl in Banda who was later implicated in a fake theft case while another minor girl in Kanpur, Divya, died after allegedly being sexually assaulted inside her school.
