After facing flak for laxity, the Akhilesh Yadav government has sent a two-page report on the horrific Bulandshahr gang-rape case to the Union home ministry.

The report, prepared by the state home department, has said that so far three persons have been arrested and four state police officials have been suspended in connection with the case.

The state home department has also said that it has taken prompt action against four police officials for not taking swift steps and a probe is underway in the matter.

The officials suspended include SSP Bulandshahr Vaibhav Kishan, SP city Rammohan Singh, circle officer Himanshu Gaurav and SHO Ramsen Singh of Kotwali Dehat, says the report .

The report is now with Home Minister Rajnath Singh and he will share the details of the report in the Parliament if the issue was raised by the members.

The MHA on Monday shot off a missive to the state government seeking a report on the horrific incident. However, the state home department was awaiting a final nod from the top brass to share the details with the Centre.

The report was dispatched late Monday evening, even as the Akhilesh Yadav government has directed the DGP to personally monitor the developments and ensure a speedy probe into the case. The brutal crime has already given fodder to the political parties to launch a scathing attack on the Samajwadi Party government ahead of the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections due next year.

In the light of Bulandshahr gang-rape case, arch rival and BSP supremo Mayawati on Monday alleged that there was a complete breakdown of law and order in the state under the incumbent government.

Last week, a woman and her teenage daughter were allegedly gang-raped by a group of armed robbers, who waylaid their car on the Delhi-Kanpur highway. The rape survivors were travelling with four of their family members to Shahjahanpur from Noida when their car was ambushed near Dostpur village in Bulandshahr

The group of bandits took the family to an isolated area nearby the highway and robbed them of cash, jewellery, mobiles and other valuables. The men of the family were beaten up and tied with ropes, while the woman and her minor daughter were allegedly gang-raped at gunpoint.
