Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday attacked Uttar Pradesh (UP) Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and UP Police over the alleged gang rape of a 19-year-old woman in Hathras, saying that ‘CM & his police say no one was raped because for them she was no one.’
Taking to the microblogging site, quoting a media report, Rahul said, “The shameful truth is many Indians don’t consider Dalits, Muslims and Tribals to be human. The CM & his police say no one was raped because for them, and many other Indians, she was NO ONE.”
The 19-year-old woman died after she was allegedly gang-raped by four men of her village. All four accused have been arrested. The incident prompted outrage, protests and calls for justice.
Earlier, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officially took over the probe in the Hathras Case.
The central government issued a notification on Saturday in this regard. As per reports CBI has registered a case in this incident and will soon dispatch teams to the crime scene.
