Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra today said she has "never seen such injustice anywhere" on the gang rape and murder of a woman in Uttar Pradesh's Hathras. The police had hastily cremated her late at night, away from her family. "This government has not allowed a father to perform the last rites of his daughter. This is injustice and this is how the government behaves with the people of Uttar Pradesh," Priyanka Gandhi said. "When an incident like this happens, it is the responsibility of the government to support the family, give justice to them. But they did the exact opposite," she told reporters. Priyanka Gandhi and her brother Rahul Gandhi were briefly detained while they were going to Uttar Pradesh's Hathras to meet the family of the gang rape victim today. The two leaders were marching on the highway between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh after their convoy was stopped on its way to Hathras. The crime has provoked nationwide outrage.
