Quit over jungle law in UP, Mayawati tells Akhilesh

Mon, Aug 01, 2016, 12:04 PM
Former UP Chief Minister and BSP chief Mayawati has asked for the resignation of UP CM Akhilesh Yadav over the Bulandshahr horror, wherein a mother and her minor daughter were gangraped on the national highway on Friday night.

"Resign if you can't handle law and order. UP mein kanoon ka raj nahi, jungle-raj chal raha hai. (In UP there is no law, Jungle raj prevails). My advice is that if you cannot handle UP, it's better that you resign from the CM's post. After this incident, it is apparent that there is no law and order in UP."

The Uttar Pradesh Police on Sunday claimed to have held three of the accused involved in the brutal assault of a woman and her teenage daughter by bandits at gunpoint on Friday night after dragging the family out of a car near Bulandshahr, even as the Samajwadi Party government came under intense flak over the incident.

UP Director-General of Police Javeed Ahmed, who was rushed to Bulandshahr by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav after the incident at village Dostpur on Delhi-Kanpur highway, identified the three detained as Naresh, 25, Bablu, 22, and Rais, 28.

He said the police had taken into custody 15 persons, all of them belonging to a nomadic Bawaria tribe, on Saturday evening and interrogated them.

Three of those held who belonged to Bawariya gang have been identified by the victims and all the culprits would be booked under the stringent National Security Act, he said.

As the incident, which occurred near bypass when the family from Noida was from travelling to Shahjahanpur on NH-91, acquired a political hue, the Chief Minister went into a fire-fighting mode and suspended Senor Superintendent of Police Bulandshahr Vaibhav Kishan, SP city Rammohan Singh, Circle Officer (Sadar) Himanshu Gaurav and Station House Officer Ramsen Singh of Kotwali Dehat, amid allegations of laxity by the police.

The DGP, accompanied by principal secretary (home), visited the site of the incident on the direction of the Chief Minister.

So far, for every atrocity committed in UP, Akhilesh Yadav managed to get away by blaming the Centre, but now his government cannot blame the Centre. At last, law and order has become a state subject in UP.
