Three people, who were arrested in connection with the Bulandshahr Gangrape and loot case, have been sent to 14 days of judicial custody on Monday.
On Sunday evening, SSP, ASP, circle officer and three others were suspended in connection with the case.
The shameful incident occurred on Friday night just at a distance of few kilometres from the Police Chowky at Bulandshahr bypass on Delhi-Kanpur National Highway.
A woman along with her minor daughter was brutally gangraped by more than a dozen dacoits.
Earlier, fifteen people were detained and the main accused identified, as police launched a massive manhunt for the bandits
SSP Bulandshahr Vaibhav Krishna said that 15 Special Task Force teams have been pressed into action and were carrying out searches in Bulandshahr, Meerut and other districts to nab the accused.
A group of bandits waylaid the family, dragged the woman her 13-year-old girl daughter to a nearby field and raped them while the men were tied with ropes.
They also looted cash, jewellery and mobile phones. One of the family members, who later managed to escape, reported the matter to police.
Taking cognisance of the case, the National Commission for Women said it has sent a member to meet the victims and officials in Uttar Pradesh but added that it finds little
cooperation from the state administration in such cases.
BSP, BJP and Congress targeted the Samajwadi Party government in the poll-bound state and demanded that it step down.
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”.
