The National Commission for Woman (NCW) has taken cognizance of a video in which a group of men assaulting a woman in Rajasthan surfaced online.

NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma has written to Director General of Police, Rajasthan to intervene and to ensure an FIR is registered in the matter. The Commission has sought immediate arrest of all the accused and to provide the victim with best medical treatment. NCW has also asked to ensure woman’s safety and to provide security to the woman with proper rehabilitation.
“The National Commission for Women has come across a Twitter post enclosing a video wherein a woman is being beaten up and brutally assaulted by a group of men. The incident is alleged to have taken place in Banswara, Rajasthan. The video is horrifying and extremely shameful and outrageous to dignity of women,” NCW said in an official statement.
“The gruesome crime is condemnable in strongest possible words. The audacity of men to publicly beat a woman in broad day light raises a serious question on the safety and security of women in the State. The Commission has taken cognizance of the matter,” the statement further read.
