Hathras Gangrape Case: SIT Team Meets Victim’s Family
The SIT team formed to probe the Hathras gangrape is expected to submit its report in seven days, post which the case will be heard in a fast-track court
Following the national outrage over the brutal gangrape and death of the 19-year-old Dalit girl from Hathras, the Uttar Pradesh government is now taking swift steps to ensure justice for the grieving family. The Special Investigation Team (SIT) that was formed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath yesterday, is now in Hathras for its interrogation. The team met with the deceased girl’s parents in her village in Bhoolgarhi, amidst tight security and without any media presence.
The unit is expected to submit its report within seven days and the matter will be tried in a fast-track court to avoid delay. The victim’s father reportedly spoke with the UP CM and has been assured of stringent action against the culprits at the earliest.
Meanwhile, sources reveal that lawyer Seema Kushwaha, who fought for the Nirbhaya case will now pursue this case on behalf of the late teenager’s family.
While the country is still coming to terms with this incident, a 22-year-old Dalit woman was drugged and gangraped in Balrampur in Uttar Pradesh on 29 September. She subsequently succumbed to her injuries on her way to the hospital. Two people have been arrested so far.
