The premier investigative agency took over the case after a massive uproar across the country. CBI claimed Sengar raped the victim on June 4, 2017. She was a minor at the time.
Here's what went down.
The Unnao rape case happened in 2017, but the victim's pleas went unheard. She had to attempt self-immolation outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence in 2018 to get attention.
Shockingly, her father was taken into police custody and died.
Last month, the victim met with a deadly accident, in which two of her aunts lost their lives and her lawyer was grievously injured.
In court, CBI said the allegations which the survivor leveled on Sengar and his accomplice Shashi Singh were true.
Apparently, Shashi took the victim to Sengar's house under the pretext of getting her a job.
When she reached his house, no one was present there. The security guards were absent too.
Thereafter, Sengar forcefully took the victim to a room where he raped her.
Reportedly, the first person to know about the rape was the victim's aunt. The victim had also written a letter to CM Adityanath to complain about Sengar but to no avail. In fact, police had told a court in Unnao that her allegations were "baseless".
A few days ago, CBI raided as many as 17 locations in connection to the car crash.
The agency also recreated the accident to understand how the truck, which had its number plate wiped out, hit the car, and what happened after that.
The victim's accident shed light on what is wrong with the system. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court also took cognizance of the matter only after the case prompted outrage.
The victim was also airlifted from Lucknow's KGMU Hospital to AIIMS, Delhi.
