"I will not fear anyone in the world ... I will win the untruth with the truth and I will bear all the sufferings while opposing the untruth." tweeted Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday. 

Quoting Mahatma Gandhi on his 151st birth anniversary, Rahul Gandhi said 'I will not bow down to anyone's injustice..'

This tweet, written in Hindi, comes a day after the former Congress President and his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were briefly arrested by the Uttar Pradesh Police while they were on their way to Hathras to meet the parents of the dalit woman who was gang-raped by upper caste men last week.

An FIR against Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and around 200 other party workers under 'The Epidemic Diseases Act', for not maintaining social distancing and not wearing face masks, was lodged by the police in UP's Gautam Buddh Nagar on Thursday.

Protests and anger intensified across India after the dalit gang-rape victim, who died at Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital on 29 September, was forcibly cremated in the wee-hours of Wednesday morning by Hathras police, allegedly without the parent's consent.

Meanwhile, leaders took to social media to pay homage to Mahatma Gandhi including Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Prime Minister paid a floral tribute to Gandhi and paid respects to the leader.
