Lucknow: The four Greater Noida gang rape victims met Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath here on Thursday, and were assured that they would get justice and the guilty will not be spared, an official said.

Adityanath also called up Director General of Police (DGP) Sulkhan Singh and sought the progress into the matter.

The Chief Minister asked the state police chief to expedite the action to nab the culprits.

The Senior Superintendent of Police of Noida has already been asked to step up investigation into the gang rape of the four women of the same family and the murder of one of its men who were accompanying them during their travel.

Adityanath assured the victims that his government was committed to the safety and security of girls and women in the state. He also said that criminal elements would soon be behind bars.

A financial assistance of Rs 5 lakh to the family and free education to the children has also been announced.

The DGP informed the Chief Minister that four special police teams were on the job. The Bulandshahr and the Aligarh police were also helping in the probe.

A family member, Yunus, informed reporters that Adityanath heard them patiently and said that criminals belong to no community.

The women along with male members were travelling by a van to meet an ailing relative when they were intercepted at an isolated stretch of the Jewar-Bulandshahr highway, some 65 km from Noida.

Three persons -- Haji, Waheem and Munna -- have been arrested so far and the police is on the lookout for the remaining criminals. The police had initially denied rape but had to beat a hasty retreat after the victims protested their claim.
