'In-camera' proceedings to record the statement of Unnao rape Survivor began at All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) in New Delhi today. The case pertains to the alleged sexual assault of the woman when she was a minor by accused Kuldeep Singh Sengar at Unnao in Uttar Pradesh in 2017. A temporary court has been set up at the Jai Prakash Narayan Apex Trauma Centre in AIIMS where the woman is presently admitted following an accident on 28th of July. He statement is being recorded by District Judge Dharmesh Sharma.

Sengar, along with the co-accused Shashi Singh, was also brought to the temporary court. The Delhi High Court had on Friday approved recording the rape survivor's statement at AIIMS after doctors said it was not advisable to bring her to the court premises.

In July, a truck rammed into the car the rape victim was travelling in with some family members and her lawyer. Two of her aunts died in the accident. Later, the rape survivor was air-lifted from a Lucknow hospital to Delhi on the Supreme Court orders. The apex court also directed the CBI to complete within two weeks its probe and file the charge sheet in the road accident case, in which the rape survivor was injured.

While transferring the cases related to the Unnao incident to Delhi, the Supreme Court had fixed a time limit of 45 days for the trial court to complete the proceedings.
