Kanpur (Jagran News Network): The arrival of Congress Supremo Rahul Gandhi outside Kanpur Medical College to meet the assault victim from Fatehpur, here on Sunday turned chaotic when the police laticharged the Congressmen protesting outside the hospital.

Police had to resort to laticharge as the Congress Party workers allegedly went berserk to protest against the Mayawati Government in UP and the spate of attacks in the state.

Earlier in the day, Rahul met the teenaged girl, who was allegedly raped by a BSP MLA, in her village here and assured her of all possible help after the victim claimed that she was getting threats from the legislator's henchmen.

"Rahul arrived at the house this afternoon and had a glass of milk which I served," the 17-year-old girl, who belongs to a backward community, told reporters in Shahbajpur village in the district, about 220 kms from Lucknow.

The Congress general secretary met the girl for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, Badlu Ram, father of the 16-year-old girl who was maimed for resisting a rape attempt, pleaded for justice and stringent punishment to the guilty so that it could act as a deterrent for other wrong-doers in future.

"Behenji, Mayawatiji, please ensure justice to my daughter so that what has happened with her today, does not happen with anyone else tomorrow. Please see the culprit gets strict punishment,” said Badlu Ram.
