It also asked the advocate general or one of the additional advocate generals to remain present during the course of hearing to apprise the court about the case and action being taken by the state government.

In the last week, two police officers and four constables have been suspended after the victim's father, who alleged that she was raped by a BJP MLA and his accomplice a year ago, died allegedly in police custody.

The court also appointed an amicus curiae in the matter and posted it to be heard on April 12.

Sengar had been moving around freely, denying the accusations, making disparaging comments about the girl and her family and hitting out at the media in the Unnao rape case.

The alleged accused in the case MLA Senger has not been arrested yet. The Yogi Adityanath government has ordered to register an FIR against the MLA today, while the UP government has put the onus of his arrest on the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

"In the FIR lodged a year ago in connection with rape, the CBI may further investigate the case or reopen it", the court said.

The intimation to the CBI for taking over the Unnao rape case was issued on Thursday night, after which they took the accused into their custody from his Lucknow home at around 4:30 am.

Chaturvedi had said that SIT headed by senior police officers conducted a preliminary investigation and then filed a report after which FIR was registered and still the state government wanted to conduct further investigation before arresting the accused MLA.

While the Uttar Pradesh police referred to the MLA as a "respectable" person, the opposition party leader Kapil Sibal took a dig at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked him what message does he want to give after the case.

The High Court on Friday said that the victim has lost her father "merely because cognizance was not taken of her complaint made in August 2017".

State Director General of Police O P Singh said the minor had not named the MLA before the magistrate earlier as she feared for her life.

This ultimate threat worked like a miracle and the MLA was merely "detailed" at that point, was immediately arrested.

On the other, the special investigation team (SIT), constituted on Tuesday by the state government, had visited the village of the victim under Makhi police station area of Unnao district.

The BJP MLA from Banagarmau in Uttar Pradesh has been charged under the stringent POCSO Act and sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) dealing with rape.

On Apr 8, the rape victim along with his family tried to commit suicide in front of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence in Lucknow.

According to report, Of the three First Information Reports or FIRs, the first has Sengar as accused in the rape case.

In his letter addressed to the Chief Justice, Chaturvedi had demanded a court-monitored investigation into the case and also into the subsequent death of the survivor's father in judicial custody.
