Police at Rahul Gandhi’s doorstep over ‘women being sexually assaulted’ remark

The special CP Law and Order, Sagar Preet Hooda, reached the residence of Congress MP Rahul Gandhi in connection with a notice which is served to him by the police to seek information on the alleged sexual harassment victims that he mentioned in his speech during the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

While conversing with the media, Sagar said, “We’ve come here to talk to him. Rahul Gandhi gave a statement in Srinagar on 30  January that during the Yatra he met several women and they told him they had been raped. We’re trying to get details from him so that justice can be given to victims”.

He further added that, “It is important for us to know whether there was any woman from Delhi who conveyed her message to Rahul Gandhi, this is a serious matter. There might be a possibility of the involvement of minors also.”

Hooda continued, “Earlier on 15 March we had come to meet Rahul Gandhi but were not able to meet him. Then on the 16th we came to Rahul Gandhi’s residence and gave notice that we’ll come today. It is important for us to know Rahul Gandhi’s statements so that the victims can get justice.”

Reportedly, when Delhi Police went to hand over a notice to Wayand MP seeking information on the sexual harassment victims mentioned in his speech during the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Kashmir earlier in January, Rahul Gandhi made them wait for hours.

In a statement, the sources revealed to a media house that, ”On 15 March, a team of Delhi Police team waited for three hours to give notice to Rahul Gandhi on his statement made in Srinagar regarding an alleged sexual assault with women. Even after waiting for three hours, Rahul Gandhi did not meet the police team.”

“Senior officers of Delhi Police again visited his residence on 16 March,  to give notice to him which was personally received by him after one-and-a-half hours,” cops said .
