Kejriwal met the alleged victims of the Bhagana rape case at Jantar Mantar here where they have been holding a protest against the government's alleged inaction over their complaint.

Demanding the arrest of the Khap Panchayat members who are alleged to have been involved in the case, Kejriwal said, "No action has been taken against the village head even after an FIR was registered. The government has turned a deaf ear to them and is not taking any step against the guilty.”

"Authorities should immediately arrest the culprits and hand over the case to CBI," he added.

AAP claimed that women were being raped and Dalits being harassed by Khap Panchayat members in Haryana's Bhagana, but no action has been taken against the culprits.

Kejriwal along with AAP's in-charge for Haryana Yogendra Yadav demanded a probe under the SC/ST Act into the complaints filed by the protesters.

Kejriwal added that he would write to Congress president Sonia Gandhi on the issue.
