Hathras (Uttar Pradesh): The CBI team investigating the murder and alleged gangrape of a teenager in Hathras district of Uttar Pradesh has managed to grab some vital clues in the case.
During a raid at the house of accused Lavkush, the CBI team has found clothes soaked with what is thought to be blood. During the raid, which lasted for about two and a half hours, the CBI officials also questioned the family members of the accused.
However, Lavkush's brother has claimed that the clothes which the CBI team has found belongs to the accused's elder brother Ravi. He claimed that Ravi works in a paint factory and the red colour on the clothes is actually red paint.
It has been learned that the CBI will interrogate the mother and sister-in-law of the victim on Friday. The CBI has already questioned the brother and father of the Hathras victim.
