The young woman was reportedly trying to meet the Gujarat CM to complain about her family not receiving their compensation from the state.

A local media reported that Rupal and her mother had been knocking on doors after the door of minister and officials to get the land allocated to them approved but to no avail.

Earlier, the duo had tried to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in Bharuch to seek his help, but they were reportedly denied permission.

The president of Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee Bharat Solanki tweeted the video and wrote ''shocked and saddened by how the daughter of a martyr was mistreated by police in front of CM Vijay Rupani, she only wished to meet the CM and represent an issue. CM must immediately apologise to this daughter of Gujarat for insulting her and the sacrifices of her father."

The same video was tweeted by Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi too.

Rahul Gandhi wrote in Hindi: "The BJP's arrogance is at its peak. Rupaniji the ' Ultimate Patriot ', the Martyr's daughter Finkava out of the house to shaming humanity. For 15 years, the family did not get help, hollow promises and Dutkar. This daughter was humiliated today for Insapha."

"Be ashamed, give justice," Rahul Gandhi added.
