The district magistrate of Unnao has also submitted a report to the state government on lapses on part of the district hospital. Based on the SIT report submitted by ADG Lucknow Zone Rajeev Krishna, the BJP-led state government has decided to suspend D K Dwivedi, CMS and Prashant Upadhyay, EMO.

"Disciplinary proceedings have been initiated against three doctors namely Manoj Kumar (orthosurgeon), G P Sachan (surgeon) and Gaurav Agrawal (EMO) for laxity in giving proper medical care to the victim's father, both prior to judicial custody and on referral from jail to the district hospital while in judicial custody," said the statement.

The state government has also ordered to provide adequate security to the victim and her family. An 18-year-old woman had created flutters after she accused the BJP MLA of raping her. She tried to immolate herself in front of the CM's residence, seeking justice. Her father was arrested and later died in custody.
