Delhi Congress leader Amrita Dhawan alleges UP Police ‘ripped off’ her clothes during Hathras march
After the detention of former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi on Thursday for violation of Section 144 by the Gautam Buddh Nagar police, now Delhi Mahila Congress Chief Amrita Dhawan has alleged that her clothes were ripped off by the Uttar Pradesh Police during a scuffle on the Yamuna Expressway on the way to Hathras. When the police were trying to detain Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi, she tried to intervene. That is when the police personnel manhandled her and tore her clothes.
Several Congress workers have posted this picture on social media and have criticized the UP Police and the UP government for such ‘uncouth’ behaviour.
However, IPS officer Vindra Shukla, DCP Women Safety, Noida, who was present at the site refuted Dhawan’s allegations said that no action by the Noida police outraged the modesty of any women. She tweeted, ” I was there during this entire demonstration and a large number of women policemen were on duty. @noidapolice Nothing like that was done against the dignity of any woman.”
