A 25-year-old man was killed and four women were allegedly gang-raped by six highway robbers on the Jewar-Bulandshahr road off the Yamuna expressway in Gautam Budh Nagar district early on Thursday.


Eight members of a family were travelling to Bulandshahr from Greater Noida to meet a relative when they were intercepted by a gang of five robbers at around 2 am.


The six looted cash and valuables from the family and then started assaulting women, the victims alleged. When the man objected the assault and tried to resist the robbery attempt, he was shot dead.


“It’s a terrible incident. An FIR has been registered. A man has been murdered. Four women have alleged gang rape. Police teams are working on the case,” Love Kumar, SSP of Gautam Budh Nagar, said. “The women are being taken for medical examination. The post-motem is being done. Two other teams are hunting for the suspects.”


Jewar MLA Thakur Dhirendra Singh said, “The victim family is from Jewar. They were travelling in Eeco car and going to Bulandshahr. The criminals threw something on the tyre and it got punctured. However, the driver of the car didn’t stop and drove for quite a distance and stopped near a hut.


“As soon as they got down from the car, five criminals took the family to the fields and started looting cash and valuables and assaulting the women,” he said.


There were three men in the car, along with four women and one child. The injured have been admitted in a local hospital in Jewar.


In a similar incident last year, on July 29 a Noida-based family of five people, including the 13-year-old girl and her mother, was headed to their native place in Shahjahanpur.


Miscreants waylaid them around 1.30 am on the Ghaziabad-Aligarh highway at Dostpur village, dragged the woman and her daughter out of the vehicle and raped them for over two hours.
