Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh has seen multiple rapes in Balrampur, Bulandshahr and Azamgarh just hours after the hasty cremation of the gang rape victim from Hathras.
This has led to outrage across the nation and there have been loud demands calling for the resignation of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
With the political temperature rising across Uttar Pradesh, the district administration in Hathras has imposed Section 144 in the area and has banned the entry of all 'outsiders' including media persons, in the Boolgarhi village where the 19-year-old Dalit girl was gang-raped and died later.
District Magistrate Praveen Lakshkar said that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) set up to probe the incident had reached the village and was interacting with the family and other people to record their statements.
"They do not want any disturbance and hence, all entry of outsiders has been stopped," he said.
The District Magistrate further said that he had no information of Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra reaching Hathras to meet the bereaved family.
