Several cricketers joined millions on social media demanding justice for the 19-year-old woman, who was brutally gang-r*ped in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh. After fighting a long battle with her injuries and pain, the girl gave up and passed away, leaving the entire nation heartbroken and in a state of shock on September 29th.
The 19-year-old girl was assaulted at a village in Hathras, some 200 km from Delhi. The girl was later dragged by her dupatta into the fields, where she was cutting grass with her mother. The girl was found brutally injured, with her tongue cut off while the accused attempted to strangulate her, almost killing her.
Meanwhile, many cricketers including the likes of Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, and many more, took to their social media and demanded stringent punishment for the accused.
The skipper of the Indian cricket team Virat Kohli took to his twitter and condemned the heinous crime and hoped that the culprits will be brought to justice. In his tweet, Virat wrote that the incident was inhumane and goes beyond cruelty.
