Supreme Court Reserves Judgement On Hathras Case, Verdict Expected Soon
The victim’s family asked for security outside of the UP Police and also demanded for the case to be transferred to Delhi
The judicial hearing of the sensational Hathras case that shook the nation last month has been completed in the Supreme Court and the judgement for the same has been reserved by the bench. The victim’s family was represented by Nirbhaya case lawyer Seema Kushwaha, while Solicitor General Tushar Mehta represented the Uttar Pradesh government.
The family of the victim who was allegedly raped and brutally killed by the accused has demanded for the case to be transferred to Delhi, once the investigations are over. The relatives of the deceased 19-year-old Dalit girl have also demanded for better security.
Though the UP government stated that complete safety has been provided to the family, including CCTV cameras as well as the deployment of police personnel outside their residence, the woman’s kin said that they do not trust the state’s authorities.
Meanwhile, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team probing this case traveled to Hathras yesterday and met with the bereaved family including the parents and two brothers of the girl. The officials also searched the accused boys’ homes for around three hours, according to sources. The CBI has been asked to submit its report in 15 days.
