UP Gang-Rape Tragedy: Deceased Body Cremated At 2.30 AM By Police, Without Family

20-year-old woman, who died on Tuesday in Delhi two weeks after she was gang-raped and tortured in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras, was cremated by policemen last night at 2.30 am allegedly as her family and relatives were locked up in their homes. The woman’s body was taken to her village in Hathras, about 200 km from Delhi, after midnight. As her family and villagers suspected the UP police wanted to complete the last rites right then, in the middle of the night, they insisted that this was “against their tradition”; the woman’s father pleaded with the police to be allowed to take her home and cremate her in the morning.The police vehicle was stopped at multiple points before the cops allegedly pushed the protesters away and drove towards the funeral ground.
