  • It has also emerged that the woman, on 3 October, had written a post on Facebook where she had said that she regrets that the Hathras victim was a Hindu; had she been buried, a postmortem would have been possible.

Earlier this week, it had emerged that the woman masquerading as the sister-in-law of the alleged gangrape and murder victim in Hathras had also masqueraded as an aunt in the Sanjali case of Agra in 2018. The woman, it was later found, is Dr Rajkumari Bansal from Jabalpur.

Now her links with the Bhim Army have come up.

This report mentions that the office bearers of the Bhim Army's Gwalior chapter have admitted that she has links with the organisation.

The same report carries a quote from a senior office bearer from the Bhim Army who says that he knows her personally, and she is their "sister".

"डॉ. राजकुमारी बंसल भीम आर्मी का सीधा कोई ताल्लुक नहीं है, लेकिन वे हमसे जुड़ी हुई हैं। हमारी बहन हैं। मैं व्यक्तिगत रूप से परिचित हूं। यदि प्रशासन या पुलिस कोई कार्रवाई करता हैं तो हम उनके साथ खड़े होंगे। - आजाद प्रीतम सिंह, जिला वरिष्ठ उपाध्यक्ष, भीम आर्मी, ग्वालियर"

It has also emerged that she posted a fake video of a statement from Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath.

The report also mentions that on 3 October she had written a post on Facebook where she had said that she regrets that the Hathras victim was a Hindu; had she been buried, a postmortem would have been possible.

The report says:

"ग्वालियर भीम आर्मी के पदाधिकारियों ने स्वीकारा कि डॉ. बंसल संगठन से जुड़ी हुई हैं। उनके फेसबुक पोस्ट पर भड़काऊ संदेशों से यह जाहिर है कि वे इस विचारधारा की समर्थक हैं। 3 अक्टूबर को डाले गए एक पोस्ट में तो उन्होंने यहां तक लिखा है कि अफसोस है कि हाथरस की बेटी हिंदू है, दफनाया गया होता तो पोस्टमार्टम हो पाता। यह पोस्ट 3 अक्टूबर का है। हाथरस कांड से विवादों में आने के बाद इनका पोस्ट भी चर्चा में आ गया है।"

A report in Dainik Jagran had claimed that Bhim Army had planted three of its members in the house of the victim of the alleged gangrape, and murder in Hathras as the relatives of the victim.

The report said that the police is in search of the three people who are understood to have influenced the family of the victim and the police had received input that the three were staying with them as relatives.

A Special Investigation Team found that Bansal stayed with the victim's family between 16 September and 22 September and that she has played a conspiratorial role in the case.

The Dainik Jagran report says that her connection emerged when the police found that she was the same woman present in Delhi with two men after the death of the Dalit victim.

In Delhi, Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar Ravan had visited the Safdarjung Hospital and protests were held after her death.
