Fifteen people were detained and the main accused identified, as police launched a massive manhunt for the bandits who brutally gangraped a woman and her teenage daughter after dragging them out of their car at Bulandshahr bypass on Delhi-Kanpur National Highway. 

“The SP government and its head must tell the people if they can return the modesty of women in such a painful and heinous crime,” BSP supremo Mayawati said. She alleged that there was complete ‘jungleraaj’ in the state and criminal elements were roaming freely. Demanding action against culprits, she said action should be taken against policemen for laxity. 

Hitting out at the Akhilesh Yadav government, Union Minister Mahesh Sharma said, “When will this end? It shows that the state government has collapsed on every front. They cannot save the honour of a daughter. It is shameful and they should step down.” 

BJP MP from Bulandshahr Bhola Singh said, “When a woman accompanied by her family is not safe, how would those alone be safe? Under Samajwadi Party rule, even the streets are not safe let along the highways. In villages, girls and women cannot go out of homes... it’s goonda raj,” he said. 

“The gang rape incident is heart-rending, it’s shocking. It has shocked human conscience. The way in presence of male members of family, a mother and daughter are traumatised and raped... it’s a chilling story of how barbaric human beings can become,” Congress chief spokesman Randeep Surjewala said.
