Gandhi, during his Bharat Jodo Yatra march on Kashmir in January, pointed fingers at the saffron party, claiming that, “women are still being sexually assaulted.” 

In the middle of this, Delhi officials went to the home of Congressman Rahul Gandhi on Tughlaq Lane to look for proof that his controversial speech was true. Rahul Gandhi, a Congressman, was greeted by Special CP Law and Order Sagar Preet Hooda, who also delivered the notice.

Gandhi sent a four-page answer to the Delhi Police’s notice about his statement on Sunday during the Bharat Jodo Yatra that “women are still being sexually assaulted.” He questioned the procedure used by the authorities and the unexpected urgency following a 45-day delay. 

As per sources, “In his 4-page reply to police, he reportedly asked if any other leader from the ruling party who had carried out such a campaign (Bharat Jodo Yatra) was ever asked similar questions as asked from him.”

Rahul further said, “You came to me on March 16, and I told you to give me 7-8 days, but you came back within two days. It was a 4000 km padayatra stretched over 140 days, where I met lakhs of people. I need time to give details.”

Meanwhile, Hooda interacted with the media and said, “We’ve come here to talk to him. Rahul Gandhi stated in Srinagar on January 30 that he met several women during the yatra, and they told him that they had been raped. We’re trying to get details from him so that justice can be given to victims”. 

“We need 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 minor victims also,” he added.

The primary reason behind the probe is to provide assured justice to the victims facing such problems.
