Lucknow: A day after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav suspended the Bulandshahr Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Vaibhav Krishan and SP (City) Rammohan Singh, Anis Ansari will now be posted as the new SSP of Bulandshahr and Mansingh Chauhan the new SP (city) of Bulandshahr (UP).

On early Saturday morning, a 35-year-old woman and her daughter were gangraped by a group of dacoits near Bulandshahr on the Delhi-Kanpur highway.

Meanwhile, UP police have claimed that they have arrested three accused and said that the accused had been identified by the victims. A 300-member task force was set up on Sunday to arrest the attackers.

Opposition parties on Monday demanded the resignation of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav over the gang rape of a Noida-based mother and daughter near Bulandshahr and also asked him to own up moral responsibility of the heinous crime.

National Womens Commission has also trashed the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) government in the state and a member said that in "Akhilesh rule, the compensation of a lost honour was Rs 1 lakh".
The panel, which sent a fact finding team to Bulandshahr on Sunday also questioned the lethargy of the police in reacting to the crime.
