It may not be noted that the Supreme Court had on September 25 granted two more weeks to the CBI to complete its probe into the accident.

In her complaint, the girl had alleged that she was raped by expelled BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar in 2017 when she was a minor.

The girl was badly injured in the road accident after a truck rammed into the car she was travelling in with her two aunts and her lawyer in Rae Bareli district of Uttar Pradesh on July 28. 

Two of her aunts died in the road accident. She was later airlifted from a hospital in Lucknow and brought to the AIIMS for better care.

After being discharged from AIIMS last month, the girl and her family was given a security cover by the CRPF at the orders of the Supreme Court,

On Thursday, the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) sought seven days from a Delhi court to provide accommodation to the victim's family. 

The girl's family had earlier told the court that they wanted to reside in the national capital as they feared for their lives in UP - their native state.
