LUCKNOW: Condemning the brutal rape and murder of a woman in the state capital earlier this week, BSP today demanded immediate arrest of the culprits.       

Senior BSP leader and former minister R K Chaudhary, who visited the scene of crime along with other leaders, told reporters here that "it is the second most gruesome case of its kind in the country after the Nirbhaya case of Delhi".   

Chaudhary alleged that there has been a spurt of crime against women under the Akhilesh Yadav government, saying the detailed report of the incident has been sent to party supremo Mayawati.       

"There is jungleraj prevailing in the state while its ministers and police officials are busy minting money," he said.         

"Police stations, chowkis and government offices have become centres of middlemen," Chaudhary said adding that the Akhilesh government has proved to be useless and it should be dismissed immediately.            

The police has neither arrested anyone so far nor has shown promptness in investigations.. it has also shown slackness in collecting evidences from the scene of crime, Chaudhary said.       

The BSP leader alleged that policemen instead of showing sensitivity kept clicking pictures from mobile phones even as the nude body was lying around, Chaudhary said.
