Unnao (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Dec 6 (ANI): The family of Unnao rape survivor, who is currently undergoing treatment at Safdarjung Hospital in the national capital, on Friday claimed they have received death threats and that the callers have also threatened to burn down their shop.
The victim's uncle and aunt and some other relatives who received threat calls are living in fear.
The family has sought security from the police administration.
Meanwhile, doctors attending the rape survivor at Safdarjung Hospital, said that her condition is critical and there are minimal chances of her survival.

On Thursday, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had taken cognisance of the incident and said that the treatment of the victim will be carried out on the government's expense and strict action will be taken against the accused. (ANI)
