New Delhi, July 12
The National Commission for Women (NCW) has sought quick motion from Gujarat Police in opposition to a person for allegedly hurling abuses and giving rape threats to a feminine slapstick comedian on social media.
In a letter to Gujarat Director General of Police (DGP) Shivanand Jha, the NCW mentioned it has been tagged in a video posted on Twitter wherein the person will be seen hurling abuses and giving rape threats to the lady.
“The NCW is committed to creating safe online space for women and ensuring cyber security to women and is perturbed by the rise in use of cyberspace to instigate crime against women,” NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma mentioned within the letter despatched late Saturday evening.
“Considering the sensitivity of the matter, it is requested that the immediate action shall be taken as per the Information Technology Act, 2000, against the miscreant and a feedback be apprised to the Commission,” Sharma mentioned. PTI
