Few members of the gang hold a meeting headed by Maharashtra based national co-ordinator Jaiprakash Shivhare and unanimously moved a proposal to take away all charges from Sampat.

Suman Singh, one of the leaders, has been made acting commander as of now.

After the meeting, Jaiprakash Shivhare said that Sampat, instead of working for the welfare of the gang, has been giving preference to her personal issues and hence the decision to remove her has been taken.

The Gulabi gang was founded by Sampat Pal, a mother of five and former government health worker to raise voice of women against widespread domestic violence and other abuse.

Several movies and documentary have been made on this gang. In 2010, Kim Longinotto made movie Pink Saris, while in 2012, Nishtha Jain made a documentary Gulabi Gang on this theme. Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla starrer Gulab Gang is all set to hit the screen this week.
