Daughter pleads for justice as father shot dead by molester in Hathras
Hathras : Crime against women has remained a big challenge for the government in Uttar Pradesh; in a latest incident, a girl's father was shot dead by a group of men for allegedly filing a molestation complaint against them on behalf of his daughter.
The matter dates back to 2018 when a father had filed a police complaint against Gaurav Singh for allegedly molesting her daughter. The accused man was sent to jail and was later granted bail by a local court.
He, along with his friends, came to the girl's village and shot her father after an argument over the case. The man succumbed to his wounds.
After the gruesome murder, a video of the girl pleading for justice outside a police incident is going viral on social media. “Please give me justice… please give me justice. He molested me and my father had filed a case against him. He has now shot dead my father. He had come to our village. There were six-seven people. My father had no enmity against anyone,” she is heard saying in the video.

The cops have started the investigation and made an arrest in the matter. The police have claimed that other culprits will also be arrested soon.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Adityanath Yogi has directed the authorities to fast track the case and ensure stringent punishment to the culprits.
