    NWC seeks explanation over ‘manhandling’ Priyanka Gandhi from UP Police

    Over the alleged manhandling of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi by UP Police, the National Women Commission (NWC) has now sought an explanation

    Guwahati: Over the alleged manhandling of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi by UP Police, the National Women Commission (NWC) has now sought an explanation.

    The incident had occurred at the Delhi-UP border when Priyanka along with other Congress leaders, including her brother Rahul Gandhi, was on her way to Hathras to meet the family of Hathras case victim on Saturday evening, when she was allegedly manhandled by UP Police.

    The NWC in a tweet on Monday stated, “@NCWIndia condemns the alleged manhandling of #PriyankaGandhi by police while she was on her way to #Hathras. This insensitive behavior is totally unacceptable. Considering the sensitivity of the matter, our Chairperson @sharmarekha has sought a reply from @dgpup at the earliest”

    “A copy of the letter has also been sent to @dmgbnagar and #DCP, Police Commissionerate, #gautamBuddhNagar”, it said in another tweet.

    In the melee, a helmet-wearing policeman had held the 48-year-old Congress general secretary by her Kurta at the DND toll plaza while a crowd surrounded them.

    The 20-year-old Dalit woman was allegedly raped by four men from the village who were from the upper caste on September 14. She was transferred to Dehli’s Safdarjung hospital as her condition deteriorated. There she succumbed to her injuries on Tuesday.

    The already saturated situation of Hathras became grimier when she was cremated in the early hours of Wednesday with family members alleging that the last rites were conducted with force by the police officials.
