Uttar Pradesh government has told the Supreme Court that Hathras victim was cremated in the middle of the night "to avoid large-scale violence" in the morning.
 
 
The UP government cited intelligence inputs of "major law and order problems" in an affidavit to the Supreme Court.
 
 
It has also asked the Supreme Court to order a court-monitored probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the Hathras gang-rape case.
 
 
"The whole issue was being exploited and a caste/communal colour was being given," it said.
