'On receiving medical reports of the 2 girls, we will take appropriate action against the accused,' Muzaffarnagar SSP Rajesh Kumar said.
Muzaffarnagar: In yet another case of crime against women in Uttar Pradesh, 2 minor girls were allegedly gangraped by a group of young men on Monday in the Mansurpur area of Muzaffarnagar.
The incident took place in Nawala village where a ration dealer's son, along with his friends, raped two minor sisters.
This horrific case of gangrape occurred on May 22, when the two sisters went to the ration shop to buy grocery. According to reports, a boy named Rahul took the girls to a secluded place at gunpoint and along with his friends, raped them.
On Tuesday, the two girls somehow reached home and informed their parents about the entire dreadful episode.
The survivors along with their parents visited the nearby police station and lodged an FIR.
The accused Rahul along with his four friends Rajan, Sachin, Rohit and Ankit were apprehended by the police on Thursday.
The victim's father said, "We want justice to be delivered. I come from a poor family, whereas the accused come from a strong background. So, I feel that his strong background factor has influenced the police and they are not taking appropriate action against the former. Intially, the prime accused was arrested under Section 307 in the Indian Penal Code (IPC), but now he is out on bail."
Meanwhile, medical examinations of the two victims are going on in a hospital.
On the other hand, Muzaffarnagar Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rajesh Kumar said, "After receiving medical reports of the two girls, we will take appropriate action against the accused."
