The court is also likely to listen to a CBI application seeking permission for custodial interrogation of expelled BJP leader Kuldeep Singh Sengar, Atul Singh, Shailender Singh, Virender Singh and Vineet Mishra in connection with the accident case.

A team of CBI officials and the central forensic agency again the reached the site of the accident on Saturday to investigate. 

Earlier on Saturday, the District Magistrate of Unnao in Uttar Pradesh has ordered the cancellation of license of arms and weapons owned by rape case accused Kuldeep Sengar. Sengar has three arm licenses in his name, one each for a single barrel gun, a rifle and a revolver.

On July 28, a truck rammed into the vehicle in which the Unnao rape survivor, her counsel and two aunts were travelling to Raebareli. While she and her lawyer sustained grievous injuries, her aunts died.

The Uttar Pradesh Police filed a case of murder against Uttar Pradesh MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and nine others in connection with the accident. 

The Supreme Court has transferred all cases related to the Unnao rape incident, barring the accident near Raebareli, to the national capital. The top court has said that a final decision on transfer of the accident case to New Delhi will be taken after the investigation is completed by the central agency. The CBI has been given 7-14 days to investigate the accident.
