As per reports the doctor named Rajkumari Bansal was allegedly living with the victim's family by posing as the victim's Bhabi (sister-in-law) and had arrived at their home two days after the incident.
The report had also claimed that authorities began investigating Bansal for conspiracy and allegations were also levelled of her having "Naxal" connections.
After these allegations surfaced against Bansal, she told the media that she had never hidden her identity and had gone to Hathras to extent moral and financial support to the victim's family. She has claimed that she is a forensics expert and wanted to examine the autopsy report.
"If it is true that I am involved with Naxalites, let the authorities prove it", Bansal has been quoted as saying.
