CJI orders probe into why Unnao girl's letter to him was delayed

Aug 01, 2019 15:05 IST

Another aspect of the Unnao rape survivor's plight that has outraged people is the fact that multiple messages and letters sent out by the girl and her family to authorities to highlight the threat to her life went unheard. One of these were a letter sent by the girl's mother to the Chief Justice of India which CJI Ranjan Gogoi says he never received. On Thursday the Supreme Court also ordered an inquiry into the matter to ascertain whether there was any negligence or delay in processing the letter by registry officials. The probe will be conducted by a Secretary General within 7 days, under the supervision of a sitting SC judge nominated by the CJI.
