New Delhi: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra started a foot march to Hathras after her vehicle was stopped by the authorities said, "Unless govt is shaken, woken up, it will not do anything to ensure women's safety."

She further said," UP CM must take responsibility for safety of women and ensure atrocities against them are stopped. The incident (Hathras gangrape) was big injustice and what the govt did after that in cremating the body was bigger insult."

She, along with brother Rahul Gandhi, was going to Harthras to meet the family of the 19-year-old Dalit woman who succumbed to assault injuries on Tuesday following alleged gang rape.

The 19-year-old victim died in Safdarjung Hospital where she was brought on Monday from Aligarh Muslim University Medical College.

Police had conducted her last rites at her native place in the wee hours of Wednesday. All four accused involved in the incident have been arrested.
