The victim was immediately rushed to King George Medical Hospital by the Government Railway Police (GRP). According to the doctors, her condition remains critical.
On Friday (March 24), UP Chief Minister of Yogi Adityanath, visited the hospital and assured the victim that he will investigate the matter.
Talking to Youth Ki Awaaz the victim expressed that since the incident took place she is getting multiple threats to drop the case.
She told Youth Ki Awaaz, “If they did not spare me, why will they spare my young daughter? The police never ever tried to provide protection to my family while people who raped me regularly threaten my husband and even call after snatching his mobile phone. Every day I wake up with fear. I cannot sleep and work properly as my mind is occupied with the past thoughts.”
