Hathras Case: Bhim Army Chief Meets Victim Family, Demands SC Probe
After getting permission to meet the victim’s family, Chandrashekhar Azad, chief of Bhim Army, says they trust no one other than the Supreme Court.
Chandrashekhar Azad, chief of Bhim Army has met Hathras 19-year-old Dalit girl’s family. Azad got permission from authorities to meet the victim’s family and has said that he does not trust anyone other than the Supreme Court. The victim’s family does not want to stay in the village. Azad alleges that authorities are intimidating the family. Police in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district baton-charged several workers of the Samajwadi Party on Sunday (October 4) as they clashed with the force even as their leaders met the family members of the 19-year-old Dalit woman who was gang-raped earlier in the month.
On Sunday, Chandrashekhar Azad said that the Hathras gang-rape victim’s family should get ‘Y’ security cover or else he will take them to his house. After being stopped by the police on his way earlier today, Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad reached Hathras village to meet the family of the 19-year-old victim. Azad had attempted to accompany the woman’s family from Delhi to Uttar Pradesh on Saturday (October 3) but was detained by UP Police midway and put under house arrest.
