Shahjahanpur: Shahjahanpur district administration has extended security to the family members of Bulandshahr gangrape victims as demanded by them.

District magistrate Pushpa Singh, who met the family members of the victims today in Kalan area, said directives have been issued to the police to provide security to the family.

“As demanded by the family, they have been assured of arms licence at the earliest,” she said.

Besides Lohiya Awas and old-age pension, the grandfather of the victim will also get monetary help through the Rani Laxmibai Samman, Singh said, adding the locality of their native house will also be electrified.

She said all necessary help will be provided to the family by the administration.

The gang had brutally gangraped a woman and her 13-year-old daughter at gunpoint on Friday night last week after dragging them out of a car in Bulandshahr on NH-91 when they were travelling with their family from Noida to Shahjahanpur.
