Hathras, Uttar Pradesh: UP woman’s family threw themselves on ambulance to stop cremation.
As the Uttar Pradesh police have cremated the 20-year-old woman who had died after her gang-rape and torture, her family, relatives and villagers made many attempts to stop them.
The family begged the police to hand over the body so they could take the woman home before her funeral.
But the Hathras police were deaf to their pleas.
Heart-breaking visuals showed women flinging themselves on the hood of the ambulance to stop the police from taking the body away.
A woman, who believed to be the victim’s mother, was seen sitting on the road, wailing helplessly and beating her chest as the cops refused to hand over her daughter’s body.
The woman’s parents even ptotested before the car.
Nothing worked out from the police side, after being stopped multiple times, drove straight to the cremation ground. Around 2.30 am, the body was cremated with cops.
The woman’s parents said cremation at the middle of the night is not even part of their tradition.
