ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE – Right behind me is the body of #HathrasCase victim burning. Police barricaded the family inside their home and burnt the body without letting anybody know. When we questioned the police, this is what they did. pic.twitter.com/0VgfQGjjfb

The station house official (SHO) of Chandpa police headquarters in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras area, under whose locale a 19-year-old Dalit lady was severely assaulted almost a fortnight back, has been moved to the region police lines for his “inability to quickly act” looking into the issue. The body of the victim was brought to the town after the postmortem where she was later cremated.
Mystery shrouds this case as to whether there was occurrence of rape and brutality or not is to be seen. It however is true that the worst has happened to the girl and we will witness a lot in the coming days. After such brutality what was the need by the police to cremate the body of the victim at night without a proper cremation by the family of the victim is the question in the minds of the people of the nation and the question is only going to grow as we see days go by. Where are we even headed?
