Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav on Sunday announced to provide jobs to 17 affected families in Nithari serial killings. Yadav said the government had already given financial assistance of Rs five lakh and a housing plot to every affected family in Noida.
Expressing concern over the killing of children, the chief minister told a delegation of family members of Nithari victims that the government had taken prompt and effective measures to unearth the conspiracy.
Asserting that there was no slackness on the part of the government, Yadav said irreparable loss to the affected families could not be compensated but the government had made efforts to help them. The demand for the job was made by the 11 visiting family members.
Yadav said instead of politicking on the issue, efforts should be made to look into the matter in wider perspective as there had been disappearance of large number of children all over the country.
He said stern disciplinary action had been taken against erring police officers in Noida. Yadav said in the past government never acted promptly in any case.
While SSP RKS Rathore has been transferred, six police officers including circle officer Dinesh Yadav had been placed under suspension. A two-member high-level committee had indicted Rathore in the case.
The delegation of 11 families, while appreciating the government for prompt action in the case, asked the chief minister to re-appoint Rathore. Talking to newsmen the family members said there was serious threat to them from the accused and Rathore had provided them adequate security.
Interestingly they also said that suspended police circle officer Dinesh Yadav should be re-instated. In a memorandum to the chief minister the family members said while RKS Rathore had been unnecessarily punished, no action had been taken against police officers directly responsible for incident.
However they did not name any body in the memorandum. They said compensation and plot had also so far not been provided. The delegation was consisting of Satish Chandra Mishra, Kusum Agarwal, Miss Balesh Sharma, Anil Kumar Upadhayaya, Jhabbu Lal, Pappu Lal, James, Durga Prasad, Sunil Vishwas and Ram Kishan.
