Noida: The traumatised family of a woman and her 13-year-old daughter, who were gang-raped on the Delhi-Kanpur highway early Saturday morning, on Monday urged Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to hand over the accused to them.

The incident which took place near Bulandshahr has shocked the nation.

Talking to Aaj Tak, the husband of the victim said her wife and daughter should be permitted to kill the accused.

 

“I appeal to the government and the judiciary to hand over the accused to us, and permit my daughter and wife to shoot them in public, else we all would consume poison and die,” said the man.

Meanwhile, Navbharat Times has quoted the 13-year-old victim's uncle as saying that an example needs to be set in this case so that such heinous incidents are not repeated.

 

“If your mother and daughter are beaten up and gang-raped, then its trauma can be understood only by the family,” he said.

 

The UP Police has claimed to arrest three accused and said that they were identified by the victims.
