About 50 meters from the main road inside Maveli village, about 2 km from Ughaiti police station, is the temple where the incident took place where a 45-year-old woman was gangraped and murdered on Sunday. The yellow strip of the UP POLICE DO NOT CROSS is covered with a spot inside the temple. Nearly half a dozen policemen are stationed outside the strip and are not allowing anyone inside the temple.

Dalits not allowed in all temples
Khichu Valmiki, the watchman of the village standing nearby, says that he was in the village when the incident took place. But when the matter escalated, he came to know. Khichu says that we are Valmiki. We are not allowed to come to the temple. On asking the reason, we say that we do not go to this temple for years in any temple built in the village. Nathu, who lives in a house built by leaving a field next to the temple, also admits this. He says I am around 65-70 years old. We have not seen Valmiki and the Jatavs living in the village going to the temple or offering water. However, it was clear in a short time that Dalits are not allowed in the temple where the gangrape took place.
Nathu was found sitting outside the house with his wife.
For 7 years Satyaprakash was living as a priest Satyanarayana
The village’s postmaster Satish Chandra says that this temple was built by Thakur Bhup Singh almost 80 years ago. Thakur Bhup Singh’s family was the only Thakur family in the village. In his last time, he formed a committee and donated about 20 bighas of land next to the temple. Later, he dissolved the committee and gave the responsibility of the temple and land to the DM of the district. Whose caretaker was made to a man from the village itself. The caretakers and priests kept changing in between.
Satyaprakash, who arrived in the village mansion 7 years ago, started living here as a priest Satyanarayana. Bantu Gupta explains that the priest’s conduct was fine for a few days. But once Devpal of the village, who used to go to the water every day, saw the priest drinking meat and wine in the temple premises. After which he said this to some people of the village. When he objected, he showed bullying and many villagers who used to go there everyday, stopped coming.
However, Thakur priest Satyanarayana from caste used to solve the problems of villagers with tantra-mantra. The villagers tell that the maiden of the gang-raped woman is also in this village. She also used to visit the temple from the beginning. The day the incident took place, the woman came to the temple from about 15 km away. STF also reached the temple today and in addition to some sporadic leaders, national news channels also reached. To see them, the villagers were seen on the edge of the fields and on their roofs.
