He said as soon as he heard about the incident (Alwar gang rape) he spoke to CM Ashok Gehlot. “This is not a political issue for me. I met the victim’s family and they have sought justice which will be done,” Gandhi said.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, who was also at the press conference, said, “We will ensure maximum punishment to the accused”.
