The mortal remains of the Unnao rape and murder victim were buried on the outskirts of Hindupur village on Sunday afternoon in the presence of thousands of mourners. The victim was buried in a grave next to that of her grandparents.

The family had agreed for the burial after an assurance from senior police officials that their demands would be met.

The victim’s sister has demanded a government job for one member of the family, apart from the compensation of Rs 25 lakhs given to the family and an assurance of a house under the Prime Minister Awas Yojna.

The victim had passed away on Friday night after suffering 90 per cent burns. She was set ablaze by five men on Thursday while she was on her way to Rae Bareli for a hearing of the rape case she had filed against the same men.

The family members of the Unnao rape victim on Sunday agreed to perform her last rites following a negotiation with Lucknow Divisional Commissioner Mukesh Meshram and other senior police officials.

 Leaders of the Samajwadi Party are present in the village, and after the last rites, they will participate in a condolence programme at the district headquarters.

 The sister of the deceased rape victim had earlier said her family will not perform the last rites unless Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath arrives in her village and assures of strict action against the accused.

 The body of the rape victim who succumbed to severe burn injuries in a Delhi hospital on Friday night arrived in her native village here on Saturday. Her sister said the last rites would be performed only in the presence of CM Adityanath.
