He said Sonia visited the victim's room, went through her physiotherapy course books and even saw her clothes that have been packed into bundles in shelves in her room.

"The two spent an hour in our house. Sonia Gandhi sat with my mother, hugged her, and wanted to know about my sister, what her hobbies were, and what she liked to read, etc. When we told her she liked reading, she went through her books, and even read my sister's resume which was saved on her laptop," the 20-year-old brother said.

The two then went up to the first floor of the house, to the victim's room, and spent some time there, going through her belongings, including her books, shoes and clothes.

The family also asked the two about the ruling of the Juvenile Justice Board declaring the sixth accused in the case a juvenile. "They told us their hands are tied before the law of the country, and they cannot do anything against the court's verdict," the brother said.

He added that Sonia mentioned the proposed amendments to criminal laws dealing with sexual assault cases. "Soniaji told us the amendments would go to the President on Monday. We hope this will bring some positive change in the law," he said.

The family also expressed its unhappiness about the location of the MIG flat the PMO has proposed to give them. "We had been told the flat was on the outskirts of the city, far away from our current residence, somewhere in Bawana. My mother told Soniaji that we want to stay somewhere closer, so Soniaji told us we will be getting a flat possibly in Dwaraka," the brother said.
