Lady advocates write to CJI seeking constitution of High Court-monitored probe in Hathras rape case

A collective of 47 lady advocates of the Supreme Court have written to the Chief Justice of India S. A. Bobde seeking constitution of a High Court-monitored investigation and trial to ensure ‘strictest and swiftest’ possible punishment to the accused in the Hathras rape case.

Urging the court for immediate intervention, the lady advocates have also sought immediate inquiry and suspension or any punitive action against all erring police, administrative, and even medical officers, who tried to manipulate the facts and evidences in the resent case and also to set up “adequate institutional mechanisms and guidelines so no other victim or their family need to feel lost regarding our law and order, and suffer the same fate.”
