Hathras Gang-Rape Case: Nirbhaya’s Mother Asha Devi Appeals For Justice
19-year-old Dalit woman was gang-raped by four men on September 14.
As voices around India demand justice for the 19-year-old Dalit woman who was gang-raped and killed brutally by four men in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district, the mother of Nirbhaya has come forth and made an appeal for justice. Asha Devi was speaking to a news channel when she said, “It somehow feels like we are still living a decade in the past.” She added that since the alleged perpetrators have been caught, she requests the UP Government to grant justice to the woman by hanging the four.
Meanwhile, the family of the Hathras victim has alleged that the victim’s body was cremated forcefully by the police, not allowing them to pay their last respects to her. They have said that the family was locked up inside their house by the police, who then cremated the body on their own. UP’s Panchayati Raj Minister Bhupendra Chaudhary, however, has denied these allegations, having said, “The victim’s family have themselves performed the cremation according to customs.”
