Along with this, the UP government has also announced to give a house to the victim’s family under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.

Senior UP minister Swami Prasad Maurya who was sent to Unnao to meet the bereaved family, also made an announcement in this regard there: “The Chief Minister is very much with the family of the deceased in this hour of crisis. The culprits will be dealt with sternly and punished. A fast track court will be set up with this view in mind,” Maurya said.

Moreover, the government has also promised of providing government accommodation to the family of the Unnao rape victim who died of a cardiac arrest after suffering 90 per cent burns.

Earlier in the day, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had in a statement called the Unnao rape victim’s death extremely saddening and unfortunate, adding that all the accused have been arrested by the police. He assured that the government will take the case to a fast track court ensuring strict punishment for the accused.

The 23-year-old Unnao rape victim, who was airlifted to Delhi and admitted to Safdarjung Hospital with 90 per cent burns after being set on fire, died on Friday night.

After battling for life for almost 40 hours, the woman died following a cardiac arrest at 11.40 pm, hospital sources said.

The victim was attacked on early hours of Thursday by the out-on-bail accused when she along with her family were on their way to a court in Rae Bareli to attend a hearing in the rape case. The five men who attacked them also included the two who were accused of raping the woman in December.

Her family had alleged that their relatives have been getting death threats for pursuing this case. “We have faith on the police but if they fail to protect us, we will have to protect ourselves,” the Unnao rape survivor’s brother said.

The rape accused and his friends dragged the woman outside of her village, took her into the fields and doused her in petrol before setting her on fire. She was raped by the five men in March while the police could manage to arrest only three of them and two others were still on the run.

Reportedly, the rape victim survivor was going to Raebareli with her parents to pursue the case on Wednesday when she was attacked. The survivor was immediately rushed to the district hospital and then referred to Civil Hospital in Lucknow after her condition deteriorated.

All the five accused, including Hari Shankar Trivedi, Shivam and Shubham Trivedi, have been arrested by the Uttar Pradesh police and murder charges have been invoked against them.
