New Delhi, Aug 13 (PTI) The Unnao rape survivor has moved the Supreme Court seeking the transfer of a criminal case filed by the father of one of the accused in her sexual assault case from a trial court in Uttar Pradesh to Delhi.

A Delhi court had in December 2019 sentenced expelled former BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar to imprisonment for the remainder of his life for kidnapping and raping the girl in UP's Unnao in 2017 when she was a minor.

A local court at Unnao has recently issued a non-bailable warrant against the victim on a criminal complaint of alleged cheating and forgery filed by the father of Shubham Singh, one of the accused being tried in the Unnao gang rape case in a Delhi court.
