LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik today asked the state government and police to take immediate steps to ensure that incidents like the Bulandshahr gangrape do not recur.

"The state government and police need to follow their duties in ensuring that such incidents do not take place in the state," the governor said on the sidelines of a programme here.

"This is not the first incident...cases like this have been taking place at different places...there is a need to work to ensure safety to all," Naik said, adding immediate steps are needed in this regard.

The Governor however expressed satisfaction with the steps taken by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav in rushing senior officials like the DGP of state police and principal secretary (home) to the scene of the crime.

Late on Friday night, a group of bandits had waylaid a family, dragged a woman and her 13-year-old daughter out of their car, took them to a nearby field and raped them while the male members of the family were tied with ropes.

The family was travelling from Noida to Shahjahanpur when the incident occurred in Bulandshahr on NH-91.
