New Delhi: Taking serious note of the gang-rape in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav gave an ultimatum to SSP to crack the case and book offenders. 

"SSP, Bulandshahr has been given 24-hour deadline to arrest the culprits. Orders have been issued to initiate the proceedings against the officers of the concerned police stations," the UP CM office said. 

"Culprits must be arrested at the earliest and strict lawful action must be taken against them to set an example. DGP has been given strict instruction to dig into the case and arrest the criminals," CM Akhilesh said. 

Reacting to the allegations of dereliction of duty by the Bulandshahr police, the Uttar Pradesh administration on Sunday suspended the Station House Officer (SHO) following the shocking rape incident.

Uttar Pradesh DGP Javeed Ahmed addressed a press conference today and said, "Three suspects have been taken into the police custody, who have been identified by one of the victims."

Ahmed further stressed that the family which was on their way to Shahjahanpur from Noida were robbed by a gang of miscreants. However the motive behind the crime remained unclear.

"We have asked the state police to act against erring officers. Also, a massive manhunt has been launched to nab more culprits. They will be arrested soon. We are looking for for other suspects who were involved in the crime," he added further.

The state DGP also requested the government to set up a fast track court for a speedy trial into the matter. "We will demand for a fast track court to expedite justice in the case," Ahmed said. 

Meanwhile, the UP DGP denied any laxity or delay on part of police in the aftermath of the gangrape incident and said that 'the police received a call about the incident at 5:30 am after which they soon reached the site of the incident and took the victims to a hospital'.   

A three-member team of National Commission for Women (NCW) today reached and inspected the scene of the crime where the 35-year-old woman and her teen daughter were robbed and gangraped on National Highway 91 on Friday night.

Samajwadi Party spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia while addressing the media persons said, "The state police will file chargesheet at the earliest and all the culprits behind the crime will be nabbed."

"We will ensure justice in the case. However, I would like to bring to everybody's notice that more rapes take place in Madhya Pradesh, which is a BJP-ruled state," he said.

He also asked the political parties to not politicize the issue. "Samajwadi Party requests BJP as well as BSP to not play politics over the tragedy."
