Bulandshahr is a city and administrative headquarters of Bulandshahr district. Bulandhsahr assembly constituency is one of the 403 constituencies of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly and is represented by Bahujan Samajwadi Party MLA. This city is part of the Delhi National Capital Region (NCR).
Recently this city is in news because of not so happening incident. A woman and her 14-year old daughter were gang raped by a gang of five bandits near Dostpur village in Bulandshahr district on the Delhi-Kanpur highway.
According to reports, a Noida-based private sector employee, his wife, two daughters and two other male relatives were on their way to attend a funeral in Shahjahanpur, when their vehicle was stopped near Dostpur village on NH-91 at around 2:30 am. The family told the police that the road had been blocked with an “iron rod”, due to which they were forced to stop the vehicle.
As soon as they stopped the vehicle, about half-a-dozen armed dacoits reportedly surrounded them. According to the FIR, the dacoits forced the family to walk into the thickets, about 50 metres from the highway, and looted their cash, jewellery, ATM cards and other valuables.
Thereafter, they allegedly dragged the 35 year old woman and her elder daughter, 14, some distance away and raped them, while holding the male members of the family at gunpoint.
The ordeal continued for about two hours, after which the dacoits left the family. The victims then went to the Dehat Kotwali police station.
Uttar Pradesh DGP Javeed Ahmad is personally monitoring the case and tweeted that useful leads are being pursued by the state police to nab all the culprits. According to sources, 15 suspects have been detained for their alleged involvement in the Bulandshahr gangrape case so far.
Taking a serious note of the matter, the official twitter handle of the Chief Minister office shared the information and said the main accused has been identified and are suspected to belong to the nomadic criminal tribe.
“15 suspects have been detained. Main accused has been identified and he belongs to a nomadic tribe. Special teams have been formed and the ones being detained are being inquired for more details,” said Vaibhav Krishan SSP Bulandshahr.
UP Government has also deployed Principal Secretary, Home Secretary & DGP to reach Bulandshahr and monitor the search operation closely.
