Launching a scathing attack on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath over the death of Hathras gangrape victim, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi, on September 30, demanded his resignation from the post.
After the 19-year-old Dalit girl, who was gangraped and tortured, succumbed to her injuries, the UP Police reportedly cremated her body in the Hathras district at night and did not let the family take the body home to perform last rites.
Instead of protecting the victim and her family, your government became complicit in depriving her of every single human right, even in death. You have no moral right to continue as Chief Minister. 3/3— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) September 30, 2020
The 19-year-old Hathras gangrape victim died in Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital on September 29. She had been shifted to the hospital in Delhi from Aligarh’s JN Medical College and Hospital, Uttar Pradesh, on September 28, after there were no signs of improvement in her condition.
She was raped and tortured by four men in her village on September 14; all four have been arrested.
