Unnao Rape Case: Court Concludes Recording Of Statement Of CBI Witnesses

New Delhi: A Delhi court on Thursday concluded recording of statement of the prosecution witnesses in the case of alleged rape of a woman by expelled BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar in 2017, when she was a minor.

District Judge Dharmesh Sharma, during an in-camera proceedings, completed the cross examination of the CBI’s investigating officer and put up the matter for recording of statement of the accused on November 1, said advocate Dharmendra Mishra, counsel for the rape survivor and her family.

The CBI has examined 13 witnesses in the case, said Mishra.
