Bhim Army Chief and founder leader of Azad Samaj Party Chandrashekhar Azad on Sunday met the family of the Dalit woman who was raped and murdered by upper-caste Hindu men in Hathras and demanded Y-category security for them.

“I demand ‘Y security’ for the family or I’ll take them to my house, they aren’t safe here,” Azad said.

Azad further said an inquiry to be done under the supervision of a retired Supreme Court judge.

Azad was stopped by the UP Police when he was on his way to Hathras and Bhim Army chief marched with his party members towards Hathras to meet the victim’s family. 

On Friday, the Dalit leader staged a demonstration at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar where hundreds of people came with placards and shouted slogans against the upper-caste violence against Dalit woman and against the Uttar Pradesh government’s actions and policies.

“Our struggle will continue till Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath doesn’t resign and justice is not served. I urge the Supreme Court to take note of the incident,” he said at Jantar Mantar.
