Hathras gangrape victim's family

The body of the 19-year-old Dalit woman, who died two weeks after being gang-raped by four upper caste men in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district, was allegedly forcibly cremated by the Uttar Pradesh Police in the early hours of September 30 in the village of Boolgarhi, against the wishes of her family.

She succumbed to her injuries at Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital yesterday. The victim’s family said at 2:30 am while they were at their home, the police cremated the body without their permission.

When the victim’s body reached her village in Hathras in an ambulance, her family stated that the police had forcibly taken her body and performed the last rites. They said that they had requested police that they wanted the last rites to be performed according to the Hindu traditions but they didn’t listen to them. The police claimed the cremation was done in the presence of the victim’s family after the body reached the Boolgarhi village in Hathras district. Hathras Superintendent of Police (SP) Vikrant Vir denied any urgency by police in cremation.

The victim was raped in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras village by four men on September 14 and died a fortnight later after battling serious injuries. The woman was first taken to Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and Hospital in Aligarh, but shifted to Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi after her condition deteriorated.

On Wednesday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath tweeted that those responsible for the gang-rape and murder of a 19-year-old Dalit woman shall not be spared. He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had spoken to him and asked him to ensure the accused got the strictest punishment.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi tweeted that the Dalit girl had been a victim of demoniac behaviour in Hathras. For two weeks, she kept struggling between life and death in hospitals, said Priyanka. She added that incidents of rape in Hathras, Shahjahanpur, and Gorakhpur districts had shaken the state.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal demanded that the guilty should be hanged as soon as possible. He also added that the death of the Hathras victim is shameful for the society, the country as well as for all the governments. It is sad that so many daughters are being sexually assaulted and we have not been able to protect them, Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi.

Gandhi’s marathon trek concluded with the unfurling of the national flag at Srinagar’s Lal Chowk on Sunday and a mega rally is scheduled today before the Wayanad MP wraps up his yatra.

The former summer capital of the erstwhile state was sealed in view of the yatra and movement of common citizens was restricted, police had said on Sunday.

Rahul Gandhi, accompanied by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and other senior Congress leaders, resumed the march from Pantha Chowk at 11 am and reached Lal Chowk around noon where Gandhi hoisted the tricolour.

Earlier, Congress had temporarily halted the march on Friday, January 27, near Qazigund, the gateway to Kashmir valley, due to an alleged breach of security and mismanagement of crowd by the erstwhile state’s administration.

Congress leaders alleged that Rahul Gandhi after crossing Qazigund, started his march towards south Kashmir’s Vessu, but the party workers noticed that the outer cordon maintained by the Jammu and Kashmir police, was lifted all of a sudden.

However, the J&K Police has refuted the allegations of a security lapse. In a series of tweets, the police claimed that organizers of the march had not told them that such a large gathering would be joining them from Banihal and full security arrangements were in place and deployments were done as per SOPs.

Papiya Dutta is BJP candidate from Agartala for Tripura elections

Tripura, which was seen as a bastion of the Left parties, saw the BJP in office for the first time in 2018

Papiya Dutta is BJP candidate from Agartala for Tripura elections

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has announced the name of Papiya Dutta as its candidate for the Agartala assembly seat for the ensuing Tripura elections.

BJP’s Central Election Committee made the announcement on Sunday. This came a day after Congress announced the name of its candidate for Agartala. Congress named Sudip Roy Barman as its candidate for Agartala.

Both parties the BJP and the Congress have announced their candidates for the Tripura assembly polls on Saturday with the state set for a multi-cornered contest in the February 16 election for 60 seats in the state assembly.

Congress announced 17 candidates, while the Bharatiya Janata Party published two lists with 48 and six candidates, respectively. Additionally, the agreement between the BJP and IPFT was confirmed. Five seats are up for election by IPFT.

Union Minister Pratima Bhoumik, a candidate for the BJP, is from Dhanpur. The party has not offered tickets to six of its incumbent MLAs for the 2019 elections.

The MLAs that were refused tickets include Vimmi Majumdar, Subhash Chandra Das, Arun Chandra Bhowmik, Virendra Kishore Dev Burman, Parimal Debbarma, and Viplav Kumar.

The state assembly elections are coming up, and the incumbent chief minister Dr. Manik Saha will run from the Town Bordowali district.

Tripura, which was seen as a bastion of the Left parties, saw the BJP in office for the first time in 2018.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah, and party chief JP Nadda were among those present at the Bharatiya Janata Party Central Election Committee (CEC) meeting on January 27.

The nomination period ends on January 30. The voting will take place on March 2.

Nine states, as well as possibly the Union Territory of J&K, will have assembly elections in 2023. Given that there will be Lok Sabha elections in 2024, these elections are more significant.

The tone and atmosphere of the major conflict will be established by these state polls. For instance, if the BJP loses in several states, it will inspire the opposition and make it clearer whose leaders have the most negotiating leverage to be prime ministerial contenders.
