The next day, senior police officers went to attempt to serve the notice again. This time Rahul Gandhi received it personally after one-and-a-half hours.
The notice asked Rahul Gandhi to share details of the victims of sexual harassment whom he met during the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Srinagar and mentioned in his speech.
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 Congress criticized the government, stating that it was using the police to hide from Rahul Gandhi’s questions regarding the Adani-Hindenburg controversy. The Congress tweeted that the government had waited 45 days after the completion of the Bharat Jodo Yatra before seeking information on women who had spoken to Gandhi about harassment and violence they may have experienced.
