Ghaziabad police have arrested nine people in this case so far. Vikram's family has demanded strict action against the accused and refused to take his body.
Earlier, Vikram had filed a case against the miscreants for harassing his niece, but the Ghaziabad police did not take any action and on July 16, the incident took place. Journalist's brother Aniket Joshi told that a few days ago, the accused youth had made obscene comments on his niece, after which the beating took place. Ever since the report, the accused youth was constantly threatening, but the police did not take any action. Just before this incident in Kasganj, a rape accused out on bail killed the victim and her mother by mowing them down in tractor. Such sensational cases reveal the ground situation in BJP-ruled state UP under the leadership of CM Yogi Adityanath which has worsened and questions are being raised over UP police’s inaction.
