Hathras Case: Riot Company To Be Exposed In Mathura
In the case of gang-rape and murder in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district, a CBI team investigated the family members of the 19-year-old Dalit victim.
Days after the Uttar Pradesh Police arrested four alleged members of the Popular Front of India (PFI) from Mathura while they were going to Hathras, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) will now question them in jail, sources said on Monday (October 13). The UP Police arrested four men from Mathura while they were on their way to Hathras from Delhi. They were allegedly linked to the PFI and its associate outfit Campus Front of India (CFI). The four men have been identified as Atiq-ur Rehman of Muzaffarnagar, Masood Ahmed of Bahraich, Alam of Rampur and Siddique, a journalist from Kerala’s Malappuram.
The UP Police also seized their mobile phones, laptop and some literature, which could have had an impact on the law and order situation. An ED official requesting anonymity said that the financial probe agency has been investigating the role of the PFI for the last few years, including its involvement in the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) stir last year and the northeast Delhi riots in February this year. The official said that the agency will soon record their statements after visiting Mathura jail, where they have been lodged after their arrest.
