It may be recalled that in September last year, the sensational gang-rape and murder of a girl in Hathras had hogged the limelight. In view of the recent murder in Hathras, the opposition has attacked the Yogi Adityanath government over the declining law and order situation in the state.

Questioning the deteriorating law and order situation in the state, the opposition leaders have sought to know who will ensure justice to the victim’s family since all other accused have reportedly managed to cross the state’s border and are in hiding.
