Hathras Case: Will The Victim’s Family Meet CM Yogi Adityanath?
Before leaving for Allahabad High Court in Lucknow from Uttar Pradesh, the Hathras victim’s brother said that they will tell the court only about the facts.
Pointing to the discrimination based on religion and caste people face in the country, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday (October 11) took a swipe at the Yogi Adityanath government, Uttar Pradesh police and citizens for whom the Hathras gang-rape victim, a 19-year-old Dalit woman, was “no one.” “The shameful truth is many Indians don’t consider Dalits, Muslims and Tribals to be human. The CM and his police say no one was raped because for them, and many other Indians, she was NO ONE,” Gandhi wrote on Twitter and shared a news report about why the police were denying the rape when the woman repeatedly reported the assault.
The woman from Hathras’ Bulgarhi village was allegedly raped by four “upper caste” men earlier in September. She died at a hospital in Delhi later and on the following day she was cremated by the UP Police at 2:30 am even as her family protested. The state police have denied that the woman was raped saying her postmortem report did not confirm rape and that it states that she died due to neck injury. Hathras district magistrate (DM) Praveen Kumar also made similar claims.
