Large Gatherings Banned At India Gate Amid Growing Anger Over UP Rape

Large gathering are banned tomorrow in and around India Gate in central Delhi, the police in the national capital said today. However, a total of 100 people can be at Jantar Mantar, 3 km from India Gate, if they have permission of the “competent authority”. “No gathering is permissible around India Gate due to imposition of Section 144 CrPC,” the Delhi Police tweeted.

A protest meet was planned at India Gate tomorrow for the 20-year-old from Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras, whose gang rape and brutal torture had reminded many of Nirbhaya.

The choice of date was significant – October 2 is the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, who was among the first to raise voice for the cause of the oppressed members of the so-called lower castes. The woman, a member of the Scheduled Castes, had died on Tuesday at a Delhi hospital after fighting for her life for two weeks.
