The Gandhis began marching to Hathras after police stopped their cars on the Yamuna Expressway
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was arrested under Section 188 after the leader and Priyanka Gandhi along with several Congress workers began marching on the Yamuna Expressway after their convoy was stopped by the police authorities. Gandhi alleged that he was lathi-charged and pushed to the ground by the police in the melee.
Rahul Gandhi fell on the ground as the scuffle started between police and the Congress workers.
The state government had imposed section 144 ahead of the Congress leaders' visit and sealed the borders. Gandhi began their march to meet the families of the 19-year-old woman who was allegedly gang-raped by four men and then tortured and killed.
The UP Police cremated the girl without allowing her parents to even attend the last rites.
