Victim's family says 'accused peddling lies'
The victim's family on Friday alleged that the accused in the case are peddling lies and trying to create different rumours around the incident in a bid to save themselves. They say that they have left it up to the state government to get them justice in the matter regardless of which agency probed the case.
"They are finding ways to save themselves and trying to peddle lies and fuel different rumours. We have never been in contact with the accused," the victim's brother said while speaking to news agency ANI.
A 20-year-old woman was allegedly raped and murder by four men in UP's Hathras district. The woman died a few days later in a hospital in Delhi, leading to a nationwide protest against the UP government. However, the main accused in the case claimed that the four accused in the case are being framed in the matter and alleged that the family of the victim was against their friendship.
