Bulandshahr: Even as the Uttar Pradesh Police on Sunday claimed to have held three of the accused involved in the brutal gang-rape of a woman and her teenage daughter by bandits on gunpoint on Friday night, the Akhilesh Yadav government suspended Bulandshahr senior superintendent of police Vaibhav Krishan for dereliction of duty.

SP (city) Rammohan Singh, circle officer (Sadar) Himanshu Gaurav and SHO Ramsen Singh of Kotwali Dehat, were also suspended.

Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Police on Sunday had claimed to have held three of the accused involved in the crime.

The woman and her teenage daughter were raped after dragging the family out of a car near here. The family from Noida was from travelling to Shahjahanpur on NH-91.

UP DGP Javeed Ahmed, who was rushed to Bulandshahr by the CM after the incident at village Dostpur on Delhi-Kanpur highway came into limelight, identified the three detained as Naresh (25), Bablu (22) and Rais (28).

He said police had taken into custody 15 persons, all of them belonging to a nomadic tribe, last evening and interrogated them, as per PTI.

Three of the 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 (NSA), he said.

On the other hand, 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.

NCW chief Lalitha Kumaramangalam also questioned the genuineness of the detentions made by police in the case.

Earlier, Akhilesh promised stringent punishment to the culprits.
