Congress slams CM Yogi Adityanath Government and the apathy which is been shown by its U.P Police over the gang-rape case in Hathras. Opposition takes the matter to the Supreme Court to take suo motu cognizance of the issue.
“A daughter of India is raped and killed, the facts are suppressed and the right to perform the last rites is taken away from the family. This is insulting and unjust,” former Congress President Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet.
“At 2:30 in the night, the UP administration forcibly cremated the dead body of the victim despite protests by the family. The government did not protect her when she was alive. The government did not provide her with timely treatment when she was attacked. After her death, the government snatched away the rights of the family to perform the last rites and denied dignity to the dead," says Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.
