The Unnao rape survivor, who was airlifted from Lucknow to Delhi’s AIIMS for better treatment, has been shifted to a ward.

According to reports, she is out of danger and was shifted from the ICU where she was admitted in the first week of August.

The girl and her lawyer were airlifted from King George’s Medical College Lucknow, where they were undergoing treatment after an accident.

However, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), that is investigating the accident and rape case is yet to record her statement.

The initial statement by the AIIMS said that both were undergoing treatment under a multidisciplinary team of doctors from Critical Care, Orthopaedics, Trauma Surgery, and Pulmonary Medicine.

On the day she was airlifted, after an order by Supreme Court, a committee of five doctors was formed to monitor the health condition of the duo.

On July 28, a truck rammed into the car she was travelling near Raebareli, killing her two aunts and critically injuring the teen and her lawyer.

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

The case was transferred to the CBI after the family alleged a conspiracy.

The Supreme Court on August 1 had ordered the transfer of all 5 cases pertaining to the Unnao teen out of UP to Delhi.

Senger and his accomplice Shashi Singh are lodged in Tihar Jail as Tis Hazari court heard the matter in connection with the case.

Sengar, prime accused in the Unnao rape case, later denied his involvement in the conspiracy behind the accident. The court on August 9 framed charges of raping a minor against Sengar.

The court framed him under various charges including rape, criminal conspiracy, and kidnapping.

The judge had directed to frame him under sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO), as the victim was a minor at the time of the incident in 2017.
