The Supreme Court on Monday came down heavily on the government of Uttar Pradesh for challenging the Allahabad High Court verdict that directed the State to consider giving job to a family member of the Hathras gangrape and murder victim on compassionate grounds and relocation of the victim’s family from Hathras.
The Delhi High Court will on Tuesday hear a petition seeking judicial inquiry and constitution of a court-monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT) filed by parents of a nine-year old gild child, who was allegedly gangraped, murdered and her body forcibly cremated by her attackers, including a priest at Old Nangal village of the national capital.
New Delhi (ILNS): Uttar Pradesh is as lawless as it can get. As the news of two minor Dalit sisters emerged, with their family alleging murder after a failed rape bid, the Fatehpur police, without any care for the Supreme Court’s directive, released the names of the three deceased to the media.
While the gangrape and death of a young woman in UP shocked the nation, what numbed it was the heartlessness of the police which cremated her in the dead of night and claimed that she hadn’t even been raped.
