Hathras rape case: Days after Hathras rape victim, a Dalit girl, succumbed to her injuries in Delhi hospital, Aligarh range Inspector General (IG) Piyush Mordia has made a bizarre claim.
Piyush said that the victim, a Dalit girl, who was allegedly gang-raped by four men, was not raped. The IG cited the medical examination report to claim that the Hathras rape victim was not gang-raped.
The Inspector-General Piyush was quoted by news agency ANI as saying, “On 22nd September, the victim named three other persons and made allegations of rape. The medical examination did not confirm rape. Samples have been sent to the forensic lab and the report is awaited. All four accused have been arrested.”
He said that “On September 14, the victim’s brother filed a complaint, that a man strangled and tried to murder his sister. The victim was then shifted to a hospital. She in her statement said that the man had also harassed her, and made no other allegations.”
The Hathras rape victim succumbed to her injuries at the Safdarjung hospital in New Delhi on Tuesday morning.
Reportedly, four upper caste men allegedly gang-raped the 19-year-old Dalit girl in Bhoolgarhi village. The victim was shifted to Safdarjung hospital in Delhi for treatment two days back after her condition deteriorated.
On Tuesday, the Uttar Pradesh police took the victim’s body to Hathras and forcibly cremated her without the consent of the family.
