“Will the Uttar Pradesh government intimidate people into silence? The video conference call the father had with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was a farce and meant to simply exert pressure on the family. The victim’s family is not satisfied with the investigations. Injustice is all pervasive,” Vadra said.

The Congress leaders are learnt to have entered Uttar Pradesh.
