Background of Hathras Case

Hathras case, where a 19-year-old woman was strangulated, and later she succumbed to injuries on 29th September, has become a political battleground. There has been so much noise from the opposition and media houses that it has gained nationwide attention. According to several reports, there had been attempts to cause caste-based violence in the state using the said case. Connections with Naxals and PFI have emerged, and a Congress leader admitted on tape they were prepared for violence. A fake sister-in-law, who later identified as a professor from Madhya Pradesh, was also living with the family to allegedly ‘guide’ them how to speak to the media.
