Police have registered 19 cases across Uttar Pradesh after gang rape and torture of a woman in India. The police, which has been criticized for handling the brutal case in Hathras district, retaliated, alleging breach of peace, sedition and abetment of conspiracy. In various parts of the state, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath alleged that Hathras was used to disturb peace in the state. This information came from the broadcast media NDTV report.
On 14 September, a Dalit woman was raped by four upper castes in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh. He died on Tuesday, 29 September in a Delhi hospital. Doctors said that many bones have broken in the woman’s body, including her spine. Also, his tongue was cut off. The police buried his body that night without the family’s permission. The move is believed to have been taken to avoid protests. However, protests against the role of police continue across India.
Surrounded by the pressure of the protests, the state’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath recently complained that people frustrated by his government’s development efforts were trying to twist the Hathras incident. Following the Chief Minister’s allegations, 19 cases were registered across the state.
The main charges in these cases include caste discrimination and religious division, defamation and conspiracy against the state. A senior state police officer, Prashant Kumar, said, “There is a deep conspiracy in Hathras. We will investigate and reveal the truth.”
The Uttar Pradesh Police has registered a case against opposition politicians of the country for violating the rules of social distance, including visiting the family of the slain woman and violating various rules related to coronovirus.
