The suspension came hours after Chief minister Yogi Adityanath tweeted and expressed his grief over the issue. He said that his government is committed to ensuring the safety woman, adding that those who harm the dignity of ‘mothers and sisters’ in the state will be ‘destroyed’ and given exemplary punishment.
उत्तर प्रदेश में माताओं-बहनों के सम्मान-स्वाभिमान को क्षति पहुंचाने का विचार मात्र रखने वालों का समूल नाश सुनिश्चित है।
इन्हें ऐसा दंड मिलेगा जो भविष्य में उदाहरण प्रस्तुत करेगा।
आपकी @UPGovt प्रत्येक माता-बहन की सुरक्षा व विकास हेतु संकल्पबद्ध है।
यह हमारा संकल्प है-वचन है।

“Those who even think of damaging the honour of our mothers and sisters will be destroyed completely. They will be given such punishment that it will serve as an example in future. Your UP government is committed to the safety and security of every mother and sister. This is our promise, our determination,” Adityanath said in a tweet in Hindi. The Chief Minister’s assurance came amid massive political uproar over the alleged gang-rape and death of the victim in the Hathras case.
Earlier, the Station House Officer (SHO) of Chandpa police station of Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district, under whose jurisdiction the rape took place, was transferred to the district police lines for his inability to handle the case properly.
