Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party MP Meenakshi Lekhi demanded to know why Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi had not spoken on the incident that has, due to its brutality, drawn parallels with Delhi's Nirbhaya incident.

Targeting Rahul Gandhi, Lekhi said: "These people who politicise suicides have no time to visit the state."

"The Congress president herself is a woman but their concern for women and Dalits comes up only if the incident happens in a non-Congress state."

A 30-year-old law student from a poor family was brutally murdered, after being allegedly raped, in Ernakulam in Kerala five days ago.
