8.02 am: Members of the upper-caste Thakur community in Hathras accused the woman and her family of falsely blaming the four men who were arrested after her statement, NDTV reports. They criticised Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad for asking for a Supreme Court-monitored inquiry and demanded a CBI probe, which has been recommended by the Adityanath government.

“Do you not have faith in the CBI?” He [Chandrashekhar Azad] does not trust the CBI, has come here to do politics,” a Thakur man said. “Just let us meet him once then we will make sure he does [trust the CBI],” a man shouts in one of the videos, surrounded by policemen who simply watch him.
