‘Hathras’- Mirroring the Bureaucrats
3rd November, 2020
Hathras case devastated the rights of family and takes a different path to detect the Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court stay its order on taking any decision against District Magistrate Pravin Kumar.
As the U.P. Government & Bureaucrats pressurized family not to verdict against them & made this rape case as a fake troll. Division Bench consisting of Justice Pankaj Mithal & Justice Ranjan Roy was hearing a PIL & considered it as a Suo Moto case. As on September 30, at the time of cremation the family was not allowed to see her daughter and attend the last rites of their daughter, which violates the Article 19 freedom of speech. After the decision of Supreme Court, U.P. government did not agree on the fault of District Magistrate.
As according to the statement of DM, the cremation at night without asking the victim’s family was done in bona-fide manner.
But the statement of parents and relatives recorded that night stated that cremation was done forcibly and camera clips also depicts the same.
Bench asked for the CBI, for probing the case.
