Lucknow, July 30 (TIWN) The Yogi Adityanath government has recommended a CBI probe into the road accident in which the Unnao rape survivor and her lawyer have been critically injured and two female relatives killed.

The other major revelation is the truck involved in the accident belongs to a Samajwadi Party leader. The Akhilesh Yadav-led party, incidentally, was the first to demand the Central Bureau of Investigation probe. 

Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar said around midnight on Monday a formal request for the probe by the premiere agency was sent to the Centre. "The government has decided to refer the investigation of case crime number 305/2019 u/s 302/307/506/120 B IPC PS Gurbuxganj Distt Rae Bareli to the CBI. A formal request has been sent to Government of India in this regard," he stated.  Earlier on Monday, Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police O.P. Singh said the state government was ready for a CBI probe into the accident, if a request was made.
