'Inhumane, beyond cruelly': Virat Kohli on Hathras fatal gangrape incident
Dubai/New Delhi/IBNS: Reacting sharply to the fatal gangrape of a 19-year old girl in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli on Wednesday said the act was "inhumane" and "beyond cruelty".
Kohli tweeted, "What happened in #Hathras is inhumane and goes beyond cruelty. Hope the culprits of this heinous crime will be brought to justice."
The victim on Tuesday died at Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital two weeks after she was gangraped by four men in her village.
The girl was left paralysed with a spinal cord injury by the accused while her tongue was found cut.
The incident has sparked outrage with people demanding justice for the girl while politicians have targeted Adityanath for the alleged deteriorating law and order situation in his state.
Amid the outrage, Adityanath on Wednesday constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe into the heinous crime and also ordered a trial against the accused in a fast-track court.
