FIR filed against Rahul & Priyanka Gandhi over March towards Hathras
An Fir was filed against Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi over the march towards Hathras. The Fir was filed under pandemic law and Section 144. Congress leaders were detained as they were walking towards UP's Hathras. Rahul and Priyanka were going to meet family of Dalit woman allegedly raped in UP. Congress leaders' vehicles were halted at Yamuna expressway on Thursday. Rahul and Priyanka were arrested by police while they were on their way. “I want to go to Hathras alone and meet the victim's family. Section 144 restricts public assembly, I want to go alone. Please tell me under which section are you arresting me?” Rahul said. The two leaders were taken to the Buddh International Circuit guest house. Rahul and Priyanka were later released and escorted back to Delhi by UP Police. “What UP Police did to the victim's family is completely unacceptable. Police did not even allow the father to conduct his daughter's last rites,” Priyanka said.
