CBI takes Hathras case probe from UP police

A 19-year-old woman allegedly was assaulted by four men of her village on September 14. She died two weeks later after sustaining horrific injuries in a savage assault that many have compared to the 2012 gang rape in the national capital – a crime that triggered nationwide protests and calls for stricter laws to prevent crimes against women.
UP police, accused of a slow response to the complaint, has claimed there was no rape and cite a forensic report – that said it found no semen – to back their claim.
Earlier this week, the Uttar Pradesh government had requested for CBI to take over the probe into the case in an affidavit submitted by it before the Supreme Court.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has taken over the probe into the Hathras case relating to the alleged gangrape and murder of a 19-year old Dalit woman.l
