Four days after four women were allegedly gang-raped and a man shot dead in the fields off Yamuna Expressway, while they were tavelling from Jewar to Bulandshahr, the mother of 40-year-old Shakeel, who was shot dead, suffered a mild heart attack.
The 70-year-old woman complained of breathlessness and fell unconscious. She was taken to a nearby hospital with the help of police and doctors referred her to a private hospital of cardiologist Dr SK Goel in Bulandshahr.
Family members said Shakeel’s mother was allegedly under a lot of trauma since the incident on early Thursday.
Around 5:30pm, when the male family members returned from prayers, the septuagenarian complained of uneasiness. She fell to the ground and was taken to a private hospital in Jewar.
However, doctors attending to her referred her to Bulandshahr. Family members said she was admitted for more than five hours and then discharged.
Doctors told family members that the woman had suffered a mild heart attack. Her condition is stable, family members said.
The family members, on Monday morning, had staged a protest at the office of subdivisional magistrate in Jewar, demanding the immediate arrest of the six highway robbers.
They gave a two-day ultimatum to the administration and the police for nabbing the culprits.
On Thursday, eight members of the family were travelling to Bulandshahr from Greater Noida’s Jewar when they were waylaid by the six robbers around 1.30 am. The gang looted near Rs 50,000 in cash and valuables before allegedly raping the women and killing Shakeel who tried to fight them off.
Since the incident, the police have launched the man hunt, but no one has been arrested.
