Taking suo motu cognisance of the recent gang rape of a woman and her minor daughter in Bulandshahr, the Allahabad High Court has decided to hear the matter on Monday.

The case will be heard by a division bench comprising chief justice Dilip Babasaheb Bhosale and justice Yashwant Varma.

Another petition seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry into the incident had come up before the Lucknow bench of the High Court on Friday. The matter has now been posted for further hearing today.

The incident took place on July 29 when the mother-daughter duo, accompanied by four other family members, was dragged out of their car on the highway and raped in a nearby field.
