"Our feeling is that they have taken some steps, but some more effective steps are needed to be taken," said the chief justice, while impleading the state government in the matter.
The court directed the next hearing on the matter March 4.
The apex court January 24 took suo motu cognizance of the gang rape, describing it as "very disturbing". The court issued a notice to the West Bengal government and sought a report from the district judge within a week.
It is alleged that the victim was raped by a dozen men on the orders of the village head as punishment for falling in love with a man from a different community.
