Unnao: The family members of Unnao rape-murder victim have agreed to bury the body of the victim.
The decision of the family member came after a lengthy negotiation with Lucknow Divisional Commissioner Mukesh Meshram and other senior police officials.
It may be recalled that the victim’s sister had earlier made it very clear that no last rites will be performed tilled Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visits their village and promises stern action against the accused.
However, the top officials managed to convince the family members in this regard.
Meanwhile, in an emotional statement, the victim’s father had said that the body of his daughter will be buried because he may not want to see his child being burnt again. “I won’t light her pyre. My beloved daughter is already burnt,” the victim’s father said.
The district administration is making preparations for the last rites of the 23-year-old rape victim who was airlifted to Delhi and admitted to Safdarjung Hospital with 90 per cent burns.
Her body will be buried amidst heavy deployment of police and personnel of the Provincial Armed Constabulary. The woman was set afire by five men, including two of her alleged rapists, on Thursday morning when she was going to Rae Bareli to attend a court hearing.
