New Delhi [India], Oct 5 (ANI): A delegation of leaders of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and the Communist Party of India, will go to Hathras on October 6 to meet the family members of the Dalit girl who was tortured, allegedly gangraped and later died in a Delhi hospital.
A party release said that the delegation will include CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury, party Politburo member Brinda Karat, CPI General Secretary D Raja and party's national secretary Amarjeet Kaur. The delegation will also include secretaries of the Uttar Pradesh state committee of the two parties.
The Uttar Pradesh government has recommended a CBI probe into the incident. Political parties have also alleged that the 19-year-old victim was cremated without consent of parents.
