Ready to shift Hathras family to my residence: Sanjay SinghOctober 17, 2020 21:25
Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh on Saturday said he is ready to shift to his residence in Delhi the family of the Hathras victim who died after being allegedly gang-raped.
Singh said they do not need to live in fear of the Adityanath government.
'I am ready to take in the family of the Hathras victim to my residence. They do not need to live in fear of the Adityanath government. I have conveyed my feelings to the victim's uncle,' Singh tweeted in Hindi.
Reacting, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted that he is proud of Singh.
The 19-year-old Dalit woman was allegedly raped in a Hathras village by four men on September 14.
After her condition deteriorated, she was referred to Delhi's Safdarjung hospital where she succumbed to injuries. Her family alleged that the local police forced them to conduct the last rites in the dead of the night.
Local police officers, however, had said the cremation was carried out 'as per the wishes of the family'.
The incident led to protests across the country with people from different sectors demanding justice for the victim. -- PTI
