The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday filed the chargesheet against the four main accused in the alleged gang rape and murder case of a 19-year-old young Dalit girl in Uttar Pradeshs Hathras. The chargesheet invokes charges of gang rape and murder of the victim against the accused under sections 354, 376 A, 376 D and 302 of IPC and SC ST Act.

The teenager was allegedly gang raped and murdered by four upper-caste men in Hathras on September 14, 2020. She succumbed to her injuries on September 29 at Delhis Safdarjung Hospital during treatment, and was later cremated without her family consent on September 30.

The victim’s family alleged that they were forced by the local police officials to conduct the girls last rites. The officials, however, said the cremation was done as per the wishes of the family. As the incident sparked nationwide protests, the Uttar Pradesh government recommended CBI probe in the case. The CBI then initiated the probe in October. 

The CBI looked into the role of accused Sandeep, Luvkush, Ravi and Ramu who are currently in judicial custody. The accused were also put through different forensic tests at the Forensic Science Laboratory in Gandhinagar.

During investigation, the CBI team also met with the doctors at the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and Hospital, where the teenager was being treated after the gang rape on September 14, before she was brought to Delhi for further treatment.
