“It appears that my sister has been cremated; the police are not telling us anything. We begged them to let us bring her body inside the house one last time, but they didn’t listen to us,” the 19-year-old girl’s brother told The Indian Express at 3.30 am Wednesday.

“The culprits of Hathras incident against the girl will not be let go. An SIT has been formed to investigate the matter and it will submit a report within seven days. To ensure early justice, the case will be run in a fast track court,” Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath tweeted on Wednesday.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to me over Hathras incident, he said that strictest of action be taken against the culprits,” Yogi added.

As per the reports, Home Secretary Bhagwan Swaroop will head the SIT, and UP Police DIG Chandraprakash and Agra PAC Commandant Poonam will be amongst the members.

Farhan Akhtar, Javed Akhtar, Preity Zinta, Richa Chadha, Nimrat Kaur among others have condemned that the family was not given the authority to perform the final rites.
