Lucknow: In a major development, the Uttar Pradesh government on Sunday filed a FIR under various sections of the IPC alleging criminal conspiracy to incite violence via the incident.
The Hathras case has triggered widespread protests across the country, when it is also alleged that the Opposition is politicising the crime.
The UP government sources claim that there was a deliberate attempt to create a caste and communal turmoil over the Hathras alleged rape case. The victim apparently belonged to the Dalit community.
The investigation agencies suspect that a conspiracy was hatched by the Popular Front of India (PFI), the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) and mafias to disturb the government administration.
Specific evidence indicating the role of the organizations that were involved in the CAA violence were also found by the agencies, as per sources.
