The Police had issued a notice ro Rahul on March 16 asking him for details of the women who had approached him regarding sexual harassment. According to police, Gandhi gave a statement in Srinagar during the Bharat Jodo Yatra on the 30th of January that 'I have heard that women are still being sexually assaulted'. Police had asked him to give details of these victims so that security could be provided to them, the officials said. Congress said the ‘theatrics’ by Delhi Police prove ‘how rattled (Prime Minister) Modi is’ by their questions on Adani.

Delhi Police’s cheap theatrics prove how rattled Mr Modi is with our questions on Adani.
This harassment deepens our conviction to seek answers. https://t.co/GlOVemRMrB
Congress MP Jairam Ramesh questioned the delay in Police approaching Gandhi after 45 days since the Yatra has ended. Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot said police could not ‘show such audacity’ to enter the residence of a national leader without Union home minister Amit Shah's order. Congress party sees this as another tool of harassment deployed by the Delhi police. "There can be a statement, but they can't compel him to reveal names of victims. The action is malicious and bogus," it said.
As per agenvy reports, Rahul Gandhi on Sunday sent a four-page preliminary reply to the Delhi Police's notice about his "women still being sexually assaulted" remark made during the Bharat Jodo Yatra while questioning the process adopted by the authorities and a sudden urgency after a 45-day delay.
