New Delhi: BJP on Friday expressed shock at the way Uttar Pradesh administration had handled the rape of a Dalit girl involving a BSP MLA but hoped that the state government headed by a woman would respond soon and the victim would be released from prison.

"The poor girl is still languishing in prison even after arrest orders have been issued against the person who allegedly raped that child. We are shocked at the judicial system, policing system in UP," BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy said.

The Rajya Sabha MP said the state, ruled by a woman chief minister, would hopefully take action at the earliest.

"I am sure the government will respond immediately, especially a lady Chief Minister would listen to the appeal at the reckless attitude of her government and find a solution that the victim gets back her the dignity. She is released and gets justice too," Rudy said.
