Hathras gang rape
Unnao district in Uttar Pradesh has been in the news for all the wrong reasons in recent years.
The Congress has been attacking the UP government over the issue of alleged rise in crimes against women, particularly after the Hathras incident.
The SIT was set up on September 30 and initially given seven days to probe the Hathras case, but given 10-day extension on its request.
It also asked the court to direct the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to submit a fortnightly status report on the investigation to the State government which can be filed by the DGP of UP before the court.
The Congress leader said that according to the family, the Hathras DM meted out the worst treatment to them, and asked who was protecting the officer.
There is a nationwide outrage over the gang-rape and murder of the 19-year-old Dalit girl who fought grievous injuries for a fortnight before dying on September 29.
The Union Minister further said, "Rahul Gandhi has always strived to do politics, but Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been successful in the realm of national policies".
The 19-year-old Dalit woman was allegedly gang-raped at a village in Hathras on September 14. After her condition deteriorated, she was referred to the Delhi's Safdarjung hospital where she breathed her last on Tuesday.
Calling for a people's movement to break "this mindset" of violence, Satyarthi said “we need both compassionate political will and people's action” to bring an end to the culture of rape.
According to party spokesperson Anshu Awasthi, police personnel have been stationed outside Lallu's house here and he is not being allowed to venture outside.
We demand an FIR against the District Magistrate and Superintendent of Police of Hathras, Samajwadi Party national president Akhilesh Yadav said.
A case has been registered against Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and over 200 others, according to the Gautam Buddh Nagar Police.
The delegation included Derek O'Brien, Dr Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Pratima Mondal and Mamata Thakur (former MP).
