The Allahabad High Court at Lucknow took up the matter of Hathras Rape Victim matter on 25.11.2020.
On the last date the Court had asked the Government to inform that why DM Hathras cannot be transferred considering the fact that the CBI is conducting the Investigation in the matter.
On 25.11.2020, Sri SV Raju, Senior Counsel appearing for the State Government informed the Court that after pondering over the issue Government has decided not to transfer DM Hathras for following reasons:
Firstly, Its a Political Game and the Transfer of the DM has been made a Political Issue by Political Parties with oblique motive to exert pressure.
Secondly, there is no question of the DM tampering with the evidence relating to investigation.
Thirdly, security of family is now in the hands of the CRPF, with which the State has no concern.
Fourthly, the investigation is being conducted by CBI, in which the State does not have any role.
As there was no time left on that day for further hearing, the matter has been posted for 16.12.2020 at 3:15 PM.
