Prime accused Salim Bawariya and his two associates were produced in the court by CBI on the last day of their three-day remand.

The counsel of the accused said that they were innocent and were being framed in the case and accused the CBI of not presenting the material seized by the police during their investigation.

The court ordered the CBI to deposit with it the items recovered from the accused. The counsel also sought lie-detector test of the accused.

The case was transferred to CBI on the instructions of the Allahabad High Court.

The woman and her 13-year-old daughter were gang-raped while they were travelling in a car from Noida to Shahjahanpur on the intervening night of 29-30 July. The incident took place on the national highway passing through Bulandshahr.
