The Uttar Pradesh government has assured swift action and justice after two Dalit minor sisters were found hanging on a tree in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri. The government will take such action that the souls of their coming generations will also shiver, Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Brajesh Pathak said on Thursday.
Police have arrested six people in this regard and one of the accused was held after an encounter with the police in which he received a bullet injury.
The BJP leader said that justice would be delivered and proceedings would be done via a fast-track court.
"Junaid, Sohail, Hafizul, Karimuddin and Arif were involved in the incident. Girls were strangled to death and then hanged. Government will take such an action that the souls of their coming generations will also shiver," UP Deputy CM said.
Speaking exclusively to India Today TV, UP Deputy CM said, "A high-level investigation has been ordered into the matter and the guilty won't be spared. The government is standing with the family of the victim and the situation is being monitored by me."
