Yogi Adityanath orders CBI probe into Hathras fatal gangrape case

Lucknow/IBNS: Amid massive protests across the country, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath ordered a Central Bureau Investigation (CBI) probe into the Hathras fatal gangrape incident on Saturday.

The Chief Minister's Office (CMO) has put up a tweet informing about Adityanath's order of a CBI probe.

The Yogi Adityanath government has come under attack after the 19-year old, who belongs to the lowest rung of caste system prevailing in the north Indian state, was allegedly dragged by her dupatta, gangraped by four men, got her spinal cord damaged and her tongue cut.

Two weeks after the incident, which occurred on Sept 14, the girl succumbed to her injuries at a Delhi hospital last Tuesday.

In an even more shocking incident, the dead body of the girl was cremated by police officials in the dead of night denying the family members a look at the victim for the last time in Uttar Pradesh, which is ruled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).   

Earlier, Adityanath had set up a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe into the heinous crime and also ordered a trial against the accused in a fast-track court.
