New Delhi: Government is likely to allot a flat to the family of the 23-year-old girl who was gang-raped and brutally assaulted in a moving bus here last December.

The middle income group Delhi Development Authority (DDA) flat costing around Rs 50 lakh would be alloted from the vacant pool, sources said.

The proposal has been mooted by the urban development ministry for cabinet's approval.

The issue of allotting a flat for the victim's family, which hails from Ballia in UP, had come up during a visit by UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi earlier this month to their residence here.

The girl, a paramedic student, was gang-raped by six people and brutally assaulted on December 16 triggering a massive nationwide uproar.
