Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has rushed senior officials, including the additional chief secretary and DGP to Hathras, to meet with the family of the alleged gangrape victim.
Additional chief secretary, Awanish Awasthi and Director General of Police H C Awasthi have left for Hathras and would be submitting their report to the chief minister upon returning, a government spokesperson said. “We have left for Hathras and will meet the family members and take detailed information about the incident. After returning from there we will be submitting a report on the entire incident to the chief minister,” Awasthi said when contacted.
The 19-year-old woman was allegedly gangraped in a Hathras village on September 14. She was taken to Aligarh hospital in a serious condition from where she was referred to Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital where she died. The incident has led to a nationwide outrage with political parties and human rights groups staging protests and demonstrations.
