The distortion of justice faced by the Hathras victim’s family seems to have no end. After cremating the body late at night, violating all Hindu rituals and denying the family last rites, the UP police is now blocking the family’s movement.
The DM was exposed yesterday on TIMES NOW, intimidating and blackmailing the victim’s father and today the police have stooped to yet a new low. The victim’s brother had to defy all odds in order to talk to the media before he was snatched and chased away by the authorities. Running through barbed wires while hiding in fields seems to be the only option left.
He informed, “We were threatened. They have taken away our phones so that we don’t contact anybody… they (mom and sister-in-law) told me to get the media for us to talk. I have come here by hiding in the fields. The DM hit us yesterday… kicked on the chest…”
The sheer brutality of UP police is astounding as they remain silent on why the family is being blocked and kept away.
