SC Reserves Verdict On Probe Modalities In The Hathras Victim Case On Thursday

The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its order on petitions seeking court monitored probe into the alleged gangrape of a Dalit girl in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district last month. A three-judge bench headed by CJI SA Bobde indicated that the monitoring would be by Allahabad High Court. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the court that it had no objections to the trial being monitored by any court but objected to interventions by activist Teesta Setalvad. The victim’s lawyer Seema Kushwaha demanded the trial to be shifted to Delhi and that status reports of investigation be submitted to the apex court. The petition seeking Supreme Court-monitored probe and investigation by CBI was filed by one Satyama Dubey. The UP government had upfront agreed for CBI probe monitored by the apex court.
