Yamkeshwar MLA thanks CM

“After the murder of the girl, I immediately said that the building should be razed to instill fear among criminals,” Yamkeshwar MLA Renu Bisht said.

“I thank the CM who took the matter seriously and ordered action immediately against the accused. I also thank him for suspending a revenue police sub-inspector who misbehaved with the victim’s parents at the time of filing a complaint in the matter,” the MLA added.
