Lucknow, Aug.2 (ANI) Uttar Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Keshav Maurya will lead a delegation of state party leaders meet victims of the Bulandshahr gang-rape and their family. Yesterday, the family members of the victims threatened suicide if stringent punishment was not meted out to the perpetrators of the heinous crime. "We were looted, beaten up and we all know what they did to my daughter...I want my wife and daughter to punish them. If they are not punished within three months, then all three of us will commit suicide," said the cab driver, whose family was attacked and subjected to hours of unspeakable horror. "We dialed 100 for 15 minutes, but got either a busy tone or no response. Finally, I called my friend and he called the police," he added. Four police officers have been suspended. The three men, who have been arrested, were yesterday sent to 14-day judicial custody. Four other accused are, however, still absconding. The incident took place on Friday night when a 35-year-old woman and her 14-year-old daughter were allegedly gang-raped by a group of robbers in Bulandshahr district. The victims were on their way from Noida to Shahjahanpur with the other family members when their vehicle was stopped near a cycle repairing shop in Dostpur village on NH-9, which connects Noida and Bulandshahr.
