Press Trust of India  |  Ballia 

The family of the December 16 Delhi victim has alleged that did not take their permission to air its special show on the incident.

"No one either from the channel nor the producers had approached us to take our permission," they added.

Information and Broadcasting Ministry had yesterday asked not to telecast the said  episode following which the channel backtracked.

Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh (UP) chief minister (CM) has announced that his government will bear all educational expenses of the two brothers of the victim.

The decision was taken after Chief Minister (CM) visited the girl's native Medawar Kala village yesterday, district magistrate A B Chandramauli said.

The CM gave a cheque of Rs 20 lakh to the girl's parents and assured them all possible help from his government.

He also asked the district authorities to ensure development of the village singled out for the 'Lohia Samagra Gram Yojna', the DM added.

Yadav also announced construction of a Primary Health Centre (PHC) in the village.

Local MP Neeraj Shekhar said a road would be constructed linking the Ballia-Buxar national highway.
