Uttar Pradesh Government justified the cremation of the victim saying, ‘as the cremation in the morning could have invited huge rush, her parents were explained to cremate the body at night. As per the information received from the intelligence agencies, there was a possibility of gathering of lakhs of protesters. Also there was a possibility of racial politics in the matter.
