On Sunday, the Delhi Police team led by senior police officials visited the residence of Congress MP Rahul Gandhi to record his statement in connection with his Bharat Jodo Yatra speech in Srinagar in which he mentioned the sexual harassment of some women. Sources said that senior police officials had served the notice to Gandhi in this respect.
The source said that Gandhi himself received the notice.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) of New Delhi, Pranab Tayal is also present outside Gandhi’s house and other police officials. The police have made heavy security arrangements outside his residence in the Tughlak Lane area of the Lutyens zone.
The Delhi Police also have a questionnaire ready, which they want to give to him, in case he wants to reply in a written format.
The Delhi Police took cognizance of his account of the Yatra that he interacted with some women who were raped. According to them, Gandhi gave a statement in Srinagar during the Bharat Jodo Yatra “I have heard that women are still being sexually assaulted“.
The police reported that Gandhi recounted an incident during the Bharat Jodo Yatra where a girl approached him to talk about the atrocities she had faced, including rape. Gandhi asked if they should call the police, but the girl refused, fearing shame.
The Delhi Police had visited him twice and waited for hours to get the details about the victims of sexual abuse who had approached him to seek security.
