Hathras Case: UP Govt. Tells Allahabad High Court That District Magistrate Can't Be Transferred, Justifies Cremation Of Victim At Night

Govt. has decided not to transfer District Magistrate for reasons, firstly, that a political game is being played and the transfer of District Magistrate has been made a political issue by political parties with oblique motive so as to exert political pressure: UP Govt Tells HC
Secondly there is no question of the District Magistrate tampering with the evidence relevant to the investigation. Thirdly, security of the family is now in the hands of the C.R.P.F. with which the State Government and its authorities have no concern.

1/3: When #NaxalBhabhi started trending we were at the #HathrasCase victim's house. This is how some reporters have been bullying the family. In this video a #RepublicBharat reporter badgers this relative till she loses her cool. Watch this clip and then watch the next one.
2/3: After the #RepublicBharat reporter left we sat down with the exhasperated relative who showed us her aadhar card and said that she said she was jabalpur "out of anger" because she's so tired of some of these media houses constantly coming up with new 'conspiracy theories'.
3/3: This time going back to Hathras was truly heartbreaking. It almost seemed like, to some, being a reporter and being human are mutually exclusive forms of existence.

On call data records, her cousin told us that the victim's brother had enrolled for work under NREGA. The village pradhan would inform the Thakur family (accused family) , whenever work used to come up and for this reason, the two families would sometimes call each other, he said
On the letter written by the 4 accused from jail, her cousin said "If there was such a thing [a love affair], so much has happened since the incident. My sister even died. And now they’ve woken up to write this letter? It’s so clear that they’re doing this to save themselves.”
