BJP state spokesperson Vijay Bahadur Pathak said this was a very serious crime as it was committed to avenge a similar crime.
"The party sees the incident as ominous for the already sensitive western Uttar Pradesh. The state government should act promptly and take stringent action against the perpetrators," he told IANS.
