Kasturbhai Gandhi Jailed for Inciting Tax Resistance

From The Canberra Times :

MRS. GANDHI SENT TO GAOL

Mrs. Kasturbhai Gandhi, wife of the Congress leader (who is himself in gaol), was convicted at Surat under the Criminal Law Amendment Act, and sentenced to six weeks’ simple imprisonment.

It is understood that the Government did not at first intend to arrest her, but their hands were forced when she travelled among the villages in the Bardoli district of Bombay in company with other women leaders, inciting the peasants to refuse to pay their taxes.
