Noida: Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were reportedly detained by Uttar Pradesh police while they were on their way to Hathras to meet the family of the deceased gang-rape victim.
They were detained after they proceeded on foot towards Hathras after their convoy was stopped in Greater Noida by the UP Police.
The Gandhis, who have been critical of the BJP-led UP government for failing to protect the victim, want to express their condolences and show solidarity to the victim’s family in Hathras.
