Amid sharp criticism from various quarters over the Bulandshahr gang-rape case, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav will meet the victims in Ghaziabad on Thursday.

It may be a damage control initiative as it comes after senior Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan hinted at a political conspiracy behind the gang-rape of a mother and her 14-year-old daughter in Bulandshahr.

The three men, who have been arrested, were sent to 14-day judicial custody on Wednesday. Four other accused are, however, still absconding.

The incident took place earlier on Friday night when a 35-year-old woman and her daughter were allegedly gang-raped by a group of robbers in Bulandshahr district.

The victims were on their way from Noida to Shahjahanpur with the other family members when their vehicle was stopped near a cycle repairing shop in Dostpur village on NH 9, which connects Noida and Bulandshahr.
