An investigation into the rape of a Dalit girl in Hathras is still under judgement. CBI is still investigating the case. Four youths of the upper-caste have been charged with gang-raping and killing a 20-year-old Dalit girl at Hathras in Uttar Pradesh, on September 14, 2020. The girl died at a Delhi hospital after being hospitalized for several days. But, then the police did not hand over the body to the family and forcibly burnt the body in the dark of night. The protest started throughout the country like a wave of fire. However, the state police of Yogi Adityanath claimed that the body was cremated according to the wishes of the family.

Four people were charged in the incident in September last year. The CBI filed a charge sheet against the four accused persons. Not only the allegations of gang rape and murder, but the CBI has also filed cases against the accused persons under the Scheduled Castes/Tribes (Prevention of Authorities) Act.

According to the latest news, the main accused Gaurav Sharma is still absconding. One more accused Lalit Sharma has been arrested.

But, the question is arising in the case as the main accused Gaurav Sharma is a member of the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh. It has been observed for a long period that the criminalization of politics has become very much stronger in this state. The people of the country will be watching if the Chief Minister can take stringent action against the accused persons or not.
