Almost three weeks after the horrific murder and rape of two girls in Uttar Pradesh, the CBI on Thursday decided to take over the probe in Badaun rape and murder case which was monitored by the Allahabad High Court earlier.
A 20-member investigating team of CBI headed by a DIG will reach the crime spot in Badaun on Friday to begin the probe.
The incident came to light when two girls were found hanging from a tree in Badaun on May 28. They were allegedly gangraped and murdered while they had gone out into a field that was used as a toilet area.
The incident triggered a massive outrage with even United Nations condemning it and calling for immediate action against the perpetrators.
