Meanwhile, the state government submitted that it was in the final stage of preparing the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for dignified cremation of deceased in the incidents like Hathras gang rape and murder.
”The SOP would soon be notified too,” stated state counsel Pranjal Krishna.
The court has fixed September 20 as the next date of hearing in the case.
The victim was cremated in the night near her home. Her family had alleged that they were forced by the local police to hurriedly conduct her last rites. Local police officers, however, said the cremation was carried out ”as per the wishes of the family.” PTI CORR NAV RT RT
