DELHI - Police in India have arrested Rahul Gandhi and his sister Priyanka Gandhi, two key leaders of the opposition Congress party, who were on their way to a northern village to meet the family of a Dalit gang-rape victim.
According to media reports, the UP police arrested the leaders as they were going to visit the family of a 19-year-old girl belonging to the Dalit community who was gang-raped, tortured and killed last month.
