"Both patients are stable, there is a slight improvement in the condition of the rape survivor. Both patients still in critical condition," read the medical bulletin issued by King George's Medical University.
A truck rammed into the vehicle in which the Unnao rape survivor, her counsel and two aunts were travelling in to Raebareli. While she and her lawyer sustained grievous injuries, her aunts were killed on the spot.
The Uttar Pradesh Police filed a case of murder against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and nine others in connection with the accident.
Sengar, a legislator from Bangermau in Unnao district, had allegedly raped the girl at his residence in Unnao on June 4, 2017, where she had gone to seek a job. He is currently lodged in Sitapur district jail.
Probe in the case was transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday.
