The chargesheet, filed before a Lucknow court on 11 October, was sent to the court of District Judge Dharmesh Sharma on Monday, the lawyer said. The court in Delhi has been set up to conduct the trial in all the five related cases transferred from Uttar Pradesh to Delhi on the orders of the Supreme Court.

The CBI has dropped murder charges against expelled Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his associates in its first charge sheet in the Unnao rape survivor accident case. In the first charge sheet filed before a special CBI court in Lucknow, the agency charged Sengar and all other accused named in the FIR under IPC sections related to criminal conspiracy and criminal intimidation.

The FIR filed by the CBI had booked Sengar and nine other associates for alleged criminal conspiracy, murder, attempt to murder and criminal intimidation.

The woman, allegedly raped by Sengar in 2017 when she was a minor, was severely injured when a truck rammed into the car in which she was travelling along with some family members and her lawyer in Rae Bareli district of Uttar Pradesh on 28 July.

The woman and her family members are under CRPF security as per the apex court's orders.

Truck driver Ashish Kumar Pal has been charged under IPC sections related to causing death by negligence, causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others and rash driving or riding on a public way.  No charges of criminal conspiracy have been slapped against Pal in the CBI charge sheet, they said.

On the day of the accident, none of her security personnel of Uttar Pradesh Police were accompanying the woman. They were later suspended.

Two days after the accident, on 30 July , the CBI booked Sengar, his brother Manoj Singh Sengar, Arun Singh, son-in-law of a Uttar Pradesh minister along with seven others.
