The woman and her lawyer were air-lifted here from Lucknow this week on the directions of the Supreme Court.

Mahendra Singh had reached the AIIMS Trauma Centre on Tuesday afternoon.

Unnao rape victim and her lawyer were injured in a fatal truck-car crash on July 28. 

While the woman was airlifted to AIIMS on Monday, the lawyer was flown from Lucknow to Delhi on Tuesday.

He reached AIIMS around 1.30 PM on Tuesday, said Manish Aggarwal, Director of the Aeromed International Rescue Services.

The air ambulance had the same doctor and paramedic who had accompanied the rape survivor on Monday, also to the AIIMS.
