The incident had taken place when six members of a Noida-based family were travelling to Shahjahanpur in western Uttar Pradesh.

At the national highway passing through Bulandshahr, their car was stopped by criminals who dragged the 13-year-old girl and her mother out and raped them in a field nearby.

The Allahabad High Court had ordered CBI to take over investigation in the case.

CBI Spokesperson Devpreet Singh said the agency has registered a case under IPC sections related to dacoity, gangrape, kidnapping among others besides provisions of Pocso Act.

"CBI took over the investigation of case No. 838 of 2016 registered at police station Kotwali Dehat, district Bulandshahr (Uttar Pradesh) on the allegations of abduction, dacoity and rape of a lady and her daughter by five-six assailants in fields situated in village Dostpur, district Bulandshahr in the intervening night of 29/30 July, 2016," the spokesperson said.
