Following the outrage over the gang-rape and murder of two Dalit sisters in UP's Badaun, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi will visit the village and meet the girls' family members on Saturday. The teenage Dalit sisters who went missing from their home were found hanging from a tree in their village three days ago.
The gruesome incident sparked widespread condemnation of the way it was handled by the authorities. Many activists including former IPS officer Kiran Bedi slammed the government for its inability to maintain law order.
BSP chief and former Uttar Pradesh CM Mayawati referred to the state as a 'jungle raj' and demanded a CBI probe into the case. She has also demanded President's rule in the state.
