Hathras: After 48 hours, the borders of the Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras village were re-opened today after getting sealed amid outrage over the death of a 20-year-old woman who was allegedly gang raped and tortured.

According to a senior official, only reporters can enter the village.

He also added that no political leaders are permitted to visit the place.

“The curbs were put in place only to maintain law and order,” Joint Magistrate Hathras Prem Prakash Meena said.

“The allegations by a boy who spoke to some reporters on Friday are baseless. If a child can escape, it shows there were no restrictions on the family. No phones were confiscated,” Prem said dismissing allegations by the victim’s family that they were locked up in their homes and their phones were taken away.

On Friday, the victim’s family had alleged that they were “not being allowed to come out” of their homes.

A boy from the family who spoke to the reporters and said, “They have taken away our phones. My family has sent me here to talk to the reporters. I escaped and came here. They are not letting us come out are they not allowing the media to come in. They are threatening us as well.”

“The District Magistrate kicked my uncle in chest… he fainted after he was hit,” he added.

In the last two days, several opposition leaders have been stopped from entering the village amid fiery protests.

Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were stopped leading a march to the village on Thursday.

On Friday, Trinamool Congress leader Derek O’Brien, along with several other party leaders, said that they were manhandled by the UP police when they were just 1.5 km away from the victim’s village.
