    Amid outrage, CBI takes over probe into Hathras gang-rape case

    The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has taken over the investigation into the alleged gang-rape and murder of the 19-year-old Dalit woman in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras.

    Guwahati: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has taken over the investigation into the alleged gang-rape and murder of the 19-year-old Dalit woman in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras.

    The investigation agency has registered an FIR into the incident which took place on September 14, 2020. Initially, the case was registered at the Chandpa police station in Hathras.

    The development came after UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath has recommended CBI probe in the case on October 3, after it faced intense criticism from the Opposition over its handling of the case, including the hurried cremation of the victim without family’s presence.

    On September 14, the woman was allegedly raped by four upper caste men and was referred to Safdarjung Hospital in an extremely critical condition. She died two weeks later on September 29. She has suffered multiple fractures and other serious injuries, and was left paralysed.

    The case has triggered shock and anger across the country. Despite initial medical reports pointing to sexual assault, the UP government has repeatedly denied a rape had taken place.

    The police arrested all the four accused; Sandeep, Ramu, Lavkush and Ravi.
