Supreme Court directs Allahabad high court to monitor Hathras case investigation

As the high court is now inspecting a suo moto continuing, the Supreme Court bench felt it proper to give responsibility to the court with the obligation of observing the examination.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday has requested the Allahabad high court to screen the progressing examination concerning the Hathras assault case. The request went ahead a PIL documented by social extremist Satyama Dubey requesting a court-checked test into the supposed assault of a 19-year Dalit lady, who passed on September 29 at Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital.

All parts of the examination will be analyzed by the Allahabad high court, the apex court has said. As of now, the case rests with the Central Bureau of Investigaion (CBI), which may move toward the high court with its examination status report.

A three-judge bench headed by CJI SA Bobde felt it suitable that the high court should screen the case, considering the way that the court is as of now analyzing a suo moto continuing on the "hurried cremation" of the person in question.

The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad high court communicated alarm over reports portraying how the casualty was incinerated in a rushed manner supposedly without the assent of the relatives. It took suo moto cognizance of the case and called top government and cops of Uttar Pradesh. It has likewise heard the relatives of the person in question.
