UP govt is willing for CBI probe into Bulandshahr gang-rape:CM
Lucknow: Coming down heavily on the Bhartiya Janata Party for politicizing the Bulandshahr rape case, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav told media persons here on Thursday that he was not averse to a CBI inquiry into the “sad and shameless” incident if it is found necessary.
Speaking to media persons he said here “I have nothing against a CBI inquiry into this. I am also all out for a faster disposal of the case by a fast-track court if it is desired by the people concerned”.

Calling the incident “most painful”, he said the government has done whatever could be done by way of a follow-up measure. Action was taken as soon the report regarding it reached the officials concerned.
He promised to take stern action if any lapse was found on the part of the officials. He also assured that all the culprits would be nabbed soon and nobody would be spared. Measures will be simultaneously taken to prevent recurrence of this kind of incident.
Singling out electronic media for what he called ‘prejudiced’ coverage saying he was okay with the reporters in the field but what about those anchors who sat in air-conditioned studios wearing make up and talking all trash. “ They should be ashamed of their representation of the incident,” a visibly irritated CM said.
Akhilesh asked media persons not to equate one rape incident with another. Often rape report proves to be false as was the case with Bareilly incident.
