Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has taken strong exception to the alleged abduction and gang-rape of a 14-year-old girl by two constables inside a police station in Badaun and directed officials to make all out efforts to arrest them.

Instructing that a serious disciplinary action be taken against the culprits, Yadav has asked for all out efforts to apprehend the two constables, an official spokesman said. The Chief Minister ordered that a senior police officer be rushed from the headquarters to coordinate with the Badaun police for effective investigations, he said.

Taking cognizance of the incident, the Chief Minister has already instructed for immediate suspension of the two constables who are absconding, he added.

The girl was allegedly abducted from her house on December 31 by constables Veer Pal Singh Yadav and Avnish Yadav and
taken to Musajhag Police Station and allegedly raped there.

An FIR was registered after the victim’s mother lodged a complaint against the two policemen.
