Aam Aadmi Party Chief Arvind Kejriwal and Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi will visit Gujarat to meet the members of the Dalit community in the wake of assaults on them after some members allegedly skinned a cow at Una last week.
While the visit by Rahul is scheduled on Thursday, Kejriwal will go to the state on Friday.
The decision by Kejriwal and Rahul to visit the state comes a day after Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel ordered a CID probe in the incidents, and also announced setting up of a special court for "speedy" trial.
The incident at Una town in Gir-Somnath district, where Dalit youths were paraded and flogged for allegedly killing a cow, caused nation-wide outrage after its video went viral.
Four days after the incident, Chief Minister Anandiben Patel expressed her grief over the incident through tweets on Monday that she was “deeply pained by the incident” and that it was “very unfortunate”.
She said her government was taking all necessary steps in the case and that eight of the accused have already been arrested, and one police inspector and three constables suspended.
