The Allahabad High Court has ordered a CBI inquiry into the alleged abduction of a 25-year-old married Dalit woman from her parents’ residence in Uttar Pradesh’s Fatehpur district in 2021.

Three persons from an upper caste were arrested in this connection. The HC order came in response to a habeas corpus petition filed by Kalawati, mother of the victim Ritu Devi. The court expressed dissatisfaction with the state authorities, noting they failed to locate the victim despite multiple extensions sought by them.
