New Delhi :
Having failed to get a hearing from Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, two minor girls residing at Devipura locality here have taken to social media to get justice for their mother who was allegedly set afire by their father and others.
The sisters, one 15-year-old and another 11-year-old, wrote a letter to Yadav on June 14 alleging their mother was set on fire by their father and others in front of their eyes for giving birth to two girls, police said. They alleged that Bulandshahr police had not arrested any other accused named in the FIR, barring their father Manoj Bansal and had diluted the allegation in the FIR, police said.
The sisters have now taken to social media to highlight their plight. When contacted, SP (City) Maan Singh Chauhan said he had taken cognizance of the matter and the remaining culprits would be brought to book soon.
He said providing security to the sisters was the priority of the police and their request for financial assistance was being recommended to the authorities concerned.
