  • The Supreme Court lifted the stay on CBI investigation in the Bulandsahar gangrape case on Thursday. It modified its earlier order and asked the agency to proceed as per law.

  • It allowed the plea of the CBI to be impleaded in the matter as a party to the petition filed by the husband and father of the rape survivors — a mother-daughter duo.

  • The bench said the court would later deal with other aspects like transfer of trial of the case outside Uttar Pradesh and the opinion of jurist and senior lawyer FS Nariman, on whether statements by a public authority, not connected with the case, were justified or not.
