Nirbhaya's mother claimed that the fund set up in her daughter's name was not being used for the right purpose.
"The Nirbhaya Fund should have been used for women security and empowerment but it is being used for works like road construction," Asha Devi said at a programme in her village, Maderwa Kala, to mark the conclusion of the Nirbhaya Jyoti Yatra which had started from Lucknow.
"The fund needs to be used in setting up schools and hospitals," she stressed.
She also said her pleas for an appointment with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in the past two months had proved futile.
