Taking suo motu cognisance of a gangrape case of 2008, the Delhi high court has set aside a magisterial court's decision to accept the police report to close the case against the two alleged rapists.

Justice PK Bhasin set aside a magistrates order while dismissing the pleas of the two accused, who had moved the high court for deletion of their names from the FIR of the gangrape case after the lower court accepted the police report to close the case against them.

The FIR in the case was lodged on December 24, 2008 at Mehrauli police station.
