Protests have broken out demanding justice for the 20-year-old Dalit woman who was gang-raped and brutally injured in Hathras, UP.
After succumbing to her injuries, her body was cremated against the wishes of her family and in their absence.
This adds to the never-ending list of hate crime against women and caste-based violence in the country.

Most inspiring moment from today’s protest at Jantar Mantar, to demand justice for Hathras rape victim, was the presence of Jagisha Arora & Nargis Saifi. Both their partners are in jail for doing their job as responsible citizens-critiquing the govt to make India better. 1/n pic.twitter.com/Tnz3vXEUZc— Neha Dixit (@nehadixit123) October 2, 2020
