Only officials changed, real change yet to come: Raj Babbar on UP law, order

New Delhi: Condemning the horrific incident in Noida, where four women were raped while another family member was killed, the Congress on Friday asserted that only officials have been changed in the recent massive administrative reshuffle in Uttar Pradesh, but the change that was truly needed has not come yet.

“Rapes, murders and crimes have not been curbed. Only officials have been changed, but the change that was needed has not come yet. This gangrape incident is a shame for all,” Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar said in New Delhi.

Asserting that the law and order situation is deteriorating in Uttar Pradesh, Babbar stated that centre’s promises remain unfulfilled as made in its election manifesto.

“Innocents are being killed, houses are being burnt, no compensation has been given, gaurakshaks are doing atrocities and I feel pained,” he added.

Six criminals looted a family at the Jewar-Bulandshahr highway in Uttar Pradesh’s Greater Noida region on Wednesday night.

According to primary information, the criminals held the family (four men and four women) hostage and allegedly molested and raped the women.

The confirmation on the rape, however, is yet to be ascertained.

The criminals also shot a person dead after he raised an objection against the crime.

The police have lodged an FIR against the accused.
