A 50-year-old woman was gang-raped and murdered in Uttar Pradesh's Badaun. While the incident has left everyone shook to their core, the political blame game has now erupted. The post-mortem report of the woman suggests signs of brutality. The kin of the deceased victim has accused police of dereliction and have added that there is a delay in police action. Two people have been arrested but the main accused is still on the run. The SHO has been suspended for dereliction.
The opposition has slammed the Yogi government over lawlessness in the state of Uttar Pradesh and the Bhartiya Janata Party has stated that any case of dereliction will be dealt with severity, in the inquiry. The MP has made a shocking statement, saying that such incidents have happened in the regimes of other parties as well.
