New Delhi, August 13

The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to direct the Uttar Pradesh government to file a report regarding the status of the 20 cases registered against the Unnao rape victim and her family members.

A bench comprising Justices Deepak Gupta and BR Gavai said they didn’t want to widen the scope and interfere in other cases lodged against them in the state.

The apex court was told by an advocate, appearing in the case that proceedings in the four cases, which were transferred to Delhi are going on in a day-to-day basis before a special court here.

The bench said it would hear the Unnao case again on August 19. PTI
