Hathras Rape Case LIVE Updates: Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad was stopped by the UP Police today when he was on his way to UP's Hathras to meet the family of the 19-year-old Dalit woman who died at a hospital in Delhi on Tuesday after alleged gang rape and torture last month. Videos and photos showed the Bhim Army chief marching with others towards Hathras to meet the victim's family. On Friday, the Bhim Army chief joined a protest at Delhi's Jantar Mantar where hundreds of people came with placards and shouted slogans against the incident. "Our struggle will continue till Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister [Yogi Adityanath] doesn't resign and justice is not served. I urge the Supreme Court to take note of the incident," he said at Jantar Mantar.
Earlier, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra continued her attack on the Uttar Pradesh government today, asking why the SIT was still probing the Hathras rape when the family had demanded a judicial inquiry and the government had “made noise” about a CBI investigation. She also questioned who was saving the DM when the family had alleged that his behaviour with them was the worst. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s attack came a day after she met the woman’s family saying "The Congress is with you in this hour of crisis."
