It is important for us to know Rahul Gandhi's side so that the victims can get justice.
The Special CP Law and Order Sagar Preet Hooda came to Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s house in connection with a police notification seeking information on the alleged sexual harassment victims highlighted in his address during the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Talking to the media, Hooda said, “We’ve come here to talk to him. Rahul Gandhi gave a statement in Srinagar on Jan 30 that during the Yatra he met several women 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”.
“It is important for us to know whether there was any woman of 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 added.
Hooda said, “Earlier on March 15 also 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 side so that the victims can get justice,” he added.
