A special SC/ST court on Wednesday dismissed the bail petition of two of the four accused in the Hathrasgangrape and murder case of the 19-year-old girl.
Talking to TOI, victim’s lawyer Bhagerath Singh said that Ravi and Lovekush had moved a bail application in the court and the same has been dismissed by the court of the special judge (SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act) Hathras, BD Bharti. Last month, the court had dismissed the bail application of accused Ramu after hearing the arguments, he added.

The CBI had filed a charge sheet in the court in Hathras and invoked charges against four accused — Sandeep, Ravi, Ramu and Lovekush.
They have been charged under sections 302 (murder), 376 (rape), 376A (punishment for causing death resulting in a persistent vegetative state of the victim) and 376D (gang rape) of the IPC, and under Section 3(2)(v) of the SC/ST Act (an offence punishable with imprisonment for a term of 10 years or more against a person on the grounds that the person belongs to an SC or ST community).

The CBI had registered the case on October 11 and started investigating two days after that.
