Unnao: The Uttar Pradesh government has announced a Rs2.5 million (Dh128,793) compensation to the family of Unnao's rape victim who was set ablaze and also decided to set up a fast-track court for the speedy trial of the case.

Uttar Pradesh Cabinet Minister Swami Prasad Maurya visited the victim's family here on Saturday along with his colleague, Kamal Rani, and Unnao MP Sakshi Maharaj.

"Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has decided to constitute a fast-track court so that accused in the case are brought to justice at the earliest. The Chief Minister has decided to give Rs25 lakh (Rs2.5 million) as compensation to the family of the deceased from the CM's fund. The cheque will reach the victim's family by today evening," said Maurya.

"The whole government and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath are with the family of the victim. Will ensure that justice is done in this case at the earliest," he added.

"All the accused will be arrested very soon," he added, saying that no culprit of the Unnao case will be spared.

"Whatever investigation the victim's family wants, we will do it. The names that have been taken by the victim, action will be taken against them. No culprit will be spared. It is not a subject of politics," he added.

"I along with my party are in support of the victim's family. I have been vocal about it in Parliament as well. The culprits will be arrested. None will be spared. Unnao's name has been maligned," said local MP Sakshi Maharaj.

After battling for life at New Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital, the Unnao rape victim, who was set ablase while on her way to a court hearing on Thursday morning, died at 11.40 pm on Friday.

On Thursday, the 23-year-old was airlifted from Lucknow's SMC Government Hospital to Safdarjung Hospital.
