October 1, 2020: The shocking incident that has left everyone stunned and shattered took place on Sep 14, when four men allegedly dragged a 19-year-old woman into the field of UP's Hathras where they raped her brutally. Her spinal cord and neck were damaged. She allegedly bit off her tongue too while trying to resist the brutal crime and assault happening to her.

The incident has angered many including Bollywood celebrities who condemned the act and demanded justice for the victim who succumbed to her injuries on Tuesday at the Safdarjung Hospital in New Delhi.

In the wake of the same, Swara Bhasker has urged for CM Yogi Adityanath's resignation. The Bollywood actress has said that his policies are responsible for causing a "rape epidemic".

Tweeting about the incident earlier, she had slammed the system saying everyone should be ashamed.

"Horrifying heart-wrenching details of #HathrasCase ... every single caste-denier/ “there- is -no -caste -discrimination -in -India’ bullshitter should read this... and we should all be ashamed! Unspeakable horror. And the institutionalised apathy of the system is chilling!" she tweeted.

The four accused have been arrested and will likely face charges under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code.
