Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday met a Dalit woman who was allegedly gang-raped in front of her husband in Rajasthan's Alwar district.

Gandhi was accompanied by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, deputy CM Sachin Pilot and Congress national general secretary Avinash Pandey.

After meeting the victim's family, Gandhi said action will be taken against the culprits.

“This is not a political issue for me. I met the victim's family and they have sought justice which will be done. Action will be taken against culprits,” Gandhi said.

On April 26, six miscreants accosted the woman and her husband on the Thanagazi-Alwar bypass and took them to an isolated place, where they allegedly raped her in front of him.

A First Information Report (FIR) was lodged on May 2 and the accused circulated a video clip of the crime on May 4.

Subsequently, five accused, who allegedly raped the woman, and the one who shot and circulated the video clip, have been arrested.

The incident triggered widespread protests in Alwar, Jaipur, Dausa and nearby areas and a protest march led by BJP's Rajya Sabha MP Kirori Lal Meena had turned violent in Dausa on Tuesday, leaving over half a dozen people injured.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BSP supremo Mayawati and other leaders have condemned the incident.
