The central government has issued a notification for the Central Bureau of Investigation to take over probe into the alleged gang rape and death of a 19-year-old woman in Hathras in Uttar Pradesh, officials said on Saturday.


The notification has been marked to a suitable branch of the premier agency, and probe teams will be dispatched to the crime scene along with forensic experts immediately after the registration of a first information report, they said.

The Dalit woman had died of grievous injuries at a Delhi hospital on September 29, a fortnight after she was allegedly raped at her village by four upper caste men.

Besides the alleged gang rape case, the Uttar Pradesh government has sought a probe by the CBI into the FIR related to the alleged criminal conspiracy to spread caste conflict, instigating violence, incidents of vicious propaganda by sections of media and political interests, they said.
