THE CBI has taken over the investigation of the Bulandshahr gangrape and dacoity case in which a woman and her minor daughter were brutally assaulted by a gang on July 30. The agency registered a case and initiated a probe on the direction of Allahabad High Court, which had taken suo motu cognizance of the case earlier this month.
On Friday, a team of CBI officials reached the spot where the incident occurred and collected evidence.

The incident had taken place when six members of a Noida-based family were travelling to Shahjahanpur in western UP. At the national highway passing through Bulandshahr, their car was stopped by criminals who dragged the 14-year-old girl and her mother out and raped them in a field nearby.

CBI Spokesperson Devpreet Singh said the agency has registered a case under IPC sections related to dacoity, gangrape, kidnapping among others besides provisions of POCSO Act. “The CBI took over the investigation of case no. 838 of 2016 registered at police station Kotwali Dehat, district Bulandshahr (Uttar Pradesh) on the allegations of abduction, dacoity and rape of a lady and her daughter by five to six assailants in fields situated in village Dostpur, district Bulandshahr, in the intervening night of 29/30 July 2016,” the spokesperson said.
