The elder brother of the victim said, “It will be impossible to stop here after the police and media leave. It would be fine for us if we went somewhere else. ” He said that if the matter is transferred to Delhi, as he has approached the court, then he would like to shift to the national capital. He urged the government to help them move elsewhere. He said, “We want to move away from Hathras and start again.” The family had requested the Allahabad High Court on October 12 to shift from Uttar Pradesh to Delhi and we hope that our petition will be accepted. ” Also read – Hathras case update: request of Yogi government of UP to Supreme Court, monitor CBI investigation

Although additional police force has been deployed at his house, the victim family has told the visiting leaders that they do not feel safe in their village and pressure is being put on every side. Bhima Army chief Chandra Shekhar, who visited the family earlier this month, said, “I have to keep them in my house if state officials fail to provide them adequate security.” Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh tweeted on Saturday that he is ready to keep the family with him in Delhi. He said, “I have spoken to the victim’s uncle in this regard.” Also Read – UP Police, gang rape victim did not take action even after Hathras incident
