The Supreme Court Friday kept in abeyance its earlier order by which it had transferred, from Rae Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh to Delhi, the accident case in which the Unnao rape victim was severely injured.

The apex court on Thursday shifted all cases related to Unnao rape to Delhi. The court has asked the CBI to complete the probe into the car crash within seven days and rape case in 45 days.

A bench, comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Deepak Gupta, took note of the submission of Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the CBI, that the accident took place last Sunday and the investigation was in progress.

Mehta said since the probe in the accident was still pending, the case cannot be transferred under the provisions of law and sought the indulgence of the bench that its transfer be kept in abeyance till the conclusion of the probe.

In the accident involving victim's car and a truck, the girl and her lawyer were severely injured. Two aunts of the victim had died in the accident.
