NCW writes to UP DGP on Hathras gangrape victim's body being cremated at midnight

NCW writes to UP DGP on Hathras gangrape victim's body being cremated at midnight

New Delhi, Oct 1 (UNI) The National Commission for Women (NCW) has written to Director General of Police, Uttar Pradesh seeking an explanation on the urgency to cremate the body of the victim in the middle of the night that too in the absence of her family and sought its reply at the earliest.
The Commission, in a release here on Thursday, expressed shock at the brutal gangrape of the 20-year-old girl in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh, who died in Delhi after fighting for life for two weeks, saying the incident underlines the grim state of women in the society.

"NCW had taken suo motu of the gangrape incident and an Action Taken Report was received from the Uttar Pradesh police on the same day.

"The Commission has now written to Director General of Police, Uttar Pradesh seeking an explanation on the urgency to cremate the body of the victim in the middle of the night that too in the absence of her family. NCW has asked the administration to send a reply on the same at the earliest," the release said.
Referring to the "disturbing report" of cremation of her body in the middle of the night without the family's
permission and presence, the letter said "It has been reported that the victim’s body was cremated at 2:30 am
by the Police without the presence of any family member. The victim’s family had reportedly appealed to the
District Magistrate for taking her body home for performing the last rites, however the police went ahead with
the cremation while most of her family members were away.
