Cong holds silent protests; FIR against over 500 Cong workers for Oct 3 ruckus at DND
An FIR has been registered Bhim Army chief Chandrashekar Azad and 400 others for violating Section 144 of CrPC and the Epidemic Diseases Act by visiting the village on Sunday.
The Congress on Monday staged a silent protest in the district headquarters of states across the country to demand justice for the Hathras woman who was allegedly gangraped and killed by four upper caste men last week. “The Hathras incident was unfortunate and a blot on humanity. The Uttar Pradesh governments behaviour in this case has been suspicious,” Maharashta Congress chief Balasaheb Thorat told reporters in Mumbai.
Meanwhile, an FIR has been registered Bhim Army chief Chandrashekar Azad and 400 others for violating Section 144 of CrPC and the Epidemic Diseases Act by visiting the village on Sunday.
Azad demanded a time bound inquiry by a retired judge of the Supreme Court into the Hathras incident and also sought protection for the family.
An FIR was also registered against over 500 Congress workers for their protest at the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border in Noida last week.
According to the FIR lodged a little earlier before midnight on October 3. The Congress workers have been booked under IPC sections 188, 269, 270. Also, under section 3 of the Epidemic Diseases Act.
The Uttar Pradesh Police claimed they have uncovered an “international plot” to instigate riots along caste lines. And defame the Yogi Adityanath government over the brutal assault and alleged gangrape of a 19-year-old Dalit woman in Hathras. On Sunday, an FIR was registered against unidentified persons at the Chandpa Police Station in Hathras under several stringent sections of the IPC, including sedition.
