Lucknow, Oct 24: Notwithstanding the claims by the state government, crimes against women in Uttar Pradesh show no signs of abating.

A 16-year old girl was shot dead in UP's Firozabad district allegedly after she protested against her 'molestation' by three youths.

According to the police sources here, the youths barged into the house of the victim, who studied in 12th standard at a local school, in Prem Nagar area in the district late on Friday night and shot her dead.

''One of the youths, who carried a pistol, shot my daughter in the head killing her on the spot,'' the father of the victim said.

He said that her daughter had protested and threatened to lodge a complaint to the police, when the youths, who also hailed from the same locality, passed lewd comments on her while she was on her way back home from her school on Friday.

A named FIR was registered against the three youths and a hunt was launched to nab them, police said. ''We have formed three teams to nab the accused persons,'' said a senior police official in Firozabad.

The incidence of crimes against women has risen sharply in the state in the past few months triggering widespread outrage of criticism of the BJP government.

The incident comes close on the heels of alleged 'gangrape' and brutal murder of a woman in Hathras. 

The opposition parties slammed the BJP government in the state and said that the law and order situation had turned for the worse and that 'jungle raj' prevailed in the state.

He also said he has been advised by the doctors not to take up long and tiring journeys due to which he is not going to flood-affected areas.

However, he is in touch with the district administration and is monitoring the flood situation sitting at home.

He is among those ministers, MLAs, and other public representatives who were infected with the virus.

Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, another Deputy Chief Minister Dr C N Ashwath Narayan, Forest Minister Anand Singh, Social Welfare Minister B Sriramulu, BJP National General secretary C T Ravi, Minister for Primary and Secondary Education S Suresh Kumar, Agriculture Minister B C Patil, former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and state Congress chief D K Shivakumar were among those infected by the virus.
