Rahul Gandhi Pushed By Cops, Falls During Confrontation In UP

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was pushed and fell to the ground in a tussle with the Uttar Pradesh police after he, his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and scores of party workers were stopped from marching on the Delhi-Noida highway on their way to Hathras to meet the family of the gang rape victim who died on Tuesday.

The Gandhis were detained for violating a ban on large gatherings. “I am standing here peacefully. I will go alone then. I will walk alone from here to Hathras,” Rahul Gandhi told the police.

Visuals showed the Congress MP being pushed and shoved as he tried to resist the police. In the clash, the 50-year-old was seen falling to the ground. Other Congress leaders helped him up.

Priyanka Gandhi alleged that she was also pushed and there were attempts to throw her to the ground.

Ahead of the Congress leaders’ planned visit, the UP administration this morning enforced a ban on large gatherings and put up barricades at the borders citing the coronavirus. Roads to Hathras were also blocked.
