"No force can silence us," Mr Gandhi said after the meeting, vowing to keep up their pressure on the government till the family gets justice.



Priyanka Gandhi said, "Wherever something wrong happens, we will be there to ensure justice is served. No one can stop us".



Social activist Yogita Bhayana, who was with the family when the two leaders met them said, “They asked the family whether they wanted a CBI inquiry, to which the family said no. They offered their condolences to the family and extended their support.”



As the two leaders reached the family’s residence, more than 50 UP Police personnel and joint magistrate Prem Prakash Meena were present. The victim’s brother said, “They reassured us help; they said they will do what they can.”
