Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra¬† today slammed the Uttar Pradesh Government over its ‘lethargic’ attitude and deteriorating law and order situation in the state, as even after five days no arrests have taken place in the killing of senior healthcare executive Gaurav Chandel in Greater Noida.

Congress leader on Sunday said the police are still clueless about the perpetrators who committed the crime.

Gandhi in a series of Tweets (in Hindi) demanded that the family of a 39- year-old victim should be given “justice as soon as possible”.

She raised questions on law an order arrangements of the UP government, saying “if criminals are so much active in the areas like Noida, what would be the situation in other areas in UP”.

Gaurav Chandel, who was the regional manager of a private firm, and a resident of Greater Noida west, was murdered on the night of January 7, 2020 after being robbed near his house. It is suspected that the killers were a gang of carjackers who had posed as cops and asked Chandel to stop near Parthala Chowk on Monday (January 6) night when he was on his way home in Gaur City from his office in Gurugram’s Udyog Vihar.

“The government’s action is lethargic in the killing followed by robbery,” Priyanka, who is likely to visit the residence of Chandel and meet his family members on Sunday, said.
