The Centre sought a report from the Uttar Pradesh government on Monday on alleged gangrape of a woman and her teenage daughter in Bulandshahr that created huge uproar.
In a communication, the home ministry asked the state government to provide details of the incident and steps taken to nab all those involved in it, official sources said.
A gang of dacoits brutally raped a woman and her 13-year-old daughter at gunpoint after dragging them out of a car on NH-91 when they were travelling with their family from Noida to Shahjahanpur on Friday night.
Uttar Pradesh Police arrested the three accused -- Naresh (25), Bablu (22) and Rais (28) -- and detained a dozen others on Monday after launching a manhunt for the dacoits suspected to be behind the highway crime.
Facing flak from opposition, the state government suspended five officers, including district SSP Vaibhav Krishna.
