New Delhi/Hathras/IBNS: Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who are leading a party delegation towards Uttar Pradesh's Hathras village, have been stopped at the Yamuna Expressway.

Rahul and Priyanka have taken to their feet to reach Hathras as the outrage over the fatal gangrape of a 19-year old girl is growing across the country.

Though Rahul and Priyanka are heading towards Hathras, the police have imposed Section 144 in the village reportedly due to a Special Investigation Team (SIT)'s visit to the village and Covid-19 situation.

The Yogi Adityanath government has come under attack after the 19-year old was dragged by her dupatta, gangraped by four men, got her spinal cord damaged and her tongue cut.

Two weeks after the incident, which occurred on Sept 14, the girl succumbed to her injuries at a Delhi hospital on Tuesday morning.

In an even more shocking incident in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-ruled Uttar Pradesh, the law and order of which has often come under the scanner, the dead body of the girl was cremated by police officials in the dead of night denying the family members a look at the victim for the last time.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, whose resignation has been demanded by various opposition politicians and angry people on social media, on Wednesday constituted a SIT to probe into the heinous crime and also ordered a trial against the accused in a fast-track court.
