Maharashtra Energy Minister Nitin Raut has requested the Uttar Pradesh government to airlift the girl to Mumbai for treatment.
“I am disturbed with the incident in Unnao. It seems like there is nothing left in Uttar Pradesh, except “Jungle Raj”. On one side, BJP is raising ‘beti bachao’ slogans while on the other side cases of atrocities against women are increasing in the BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh. Two daughters have died while one is undergoing treatment,” Raut said.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took note of the incident and has asked the Director-General of Police to submit a detailed report on the incident. He had directed officials to ensure the best possible treatment to the victim at government cost, according to a release by the chief minister’s office.
