Gandhis attacked and arrested in India after attempted visit to gang rape victim's family

Gandhis attacked and arrested in India after attempted visit to gang rape victim's familyTwo prominent leaders of India’s opposition Congress Party were attacked and arrested by police on Thursday while trying to visit the family of a gang rape victim whose death has sparked nationwide protests. Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi claim their convoy was stopped by police in Greater Noida, a satellite city on the outskirts of New Delhi, before he was beaten with wooden sticks known as lathi and wrestled to the ground. Footage shared on social media by Mr Gandhi’s team shows police pushing him, after which he appears to fall. “Just now, police pushed me, lathi-charged me and threw me to the ground,” Mr Gandhi told Asian News International. “I want to ask, can only Modi-ji walk in this country? Can’t a normal person walk? Our vehicle was stopped so we started walking.” The Congress Party has condemned the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the brutal gang rape of the 20-year-old Dalit woman, who died from her injuries on Tuesday after fighting for her life for two weeks. The opposition party argues the BJP has not done enough to ensure women’s safety in India, where 91 women are raped each day.
