Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday expressed concern over the arrest of two Dalit sisters at Thalassery in Kannur district and promised all help to them from the party.

Rahul Gandhi called up N Rajan, father of the sisters and leader of Indian National Trade Union Congress, and Akhila, one of the two sisters who was put behind bars for allegedly attacking a CPI(M) worker.

The issue was brought to the notice of Gandhi by Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala.

Gandhi expressed shock over the arrest of the two sisters, who were released on bail last evening.

He also enquired about Anjana, Akhila’s sister, who had allegedly attempted suicide and is now in hospital, Chennithala said in a release.

Akhila and Anjana had been summoned to the police station on June 17, where a case was registered against them. They were then sent to the women’s jail after being charged with non-bailable offences.

They were released yesterday.

The National Commission for Scheduled Castes Chairman P L Punia had stated that it would intervene in the matter and take steps to ensure that justice was meted out to them.
