The probing agency had initially asked for four weeks to complete investigations, claiming it needed the extra time to record statements from the rape survivor and her lawyer, both of whom suffered grievous injuries in the accident and are in critical condition at AIIMS in Delhi.

The survivor has accused expelled BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar of raping her when she came to his house looking for employment two years ago. Kuldeep Sengar, who represents Bangermau in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly, is currently in Tihar Jail in Delhi facing trial in the rape case and has also been charged for the murder of the survivor's father.
