Hathras: Bulandshahr Congress leader Nizam Malik, who announced a reward of Rs 1 crore for anyone who brings the head of the accused in the Hathras incident, has been arrested and a case registered against him.
Malik was injured during the police lathicharge at DND flyover when Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were briefly detained on their way to meet the family of the Hathras victim.
In a recent update, a panchayat of upper caste members, including Thakurs and Brahmins, held a Mahapanchayat at Baghna village, which is two kilometres from the Hathras victim’s village Bulghari, on Saturday and said that all four accused in the case were innocent. They demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the case.
On Sunday morning, another panchayat was held where a large number of people claimed that the accused persons were being falsely implicated in the case and demanded a probe into the call detail records of the victim’s family members.
