New Delhi: The National Commission for Women (NCW) asked the Director General of Police (DGP) of Rajasthan on Tuesday to ensure a speedy and swift probe into the reported gang rape of a woman in Bikaner. A married woman, who had gone out to collect firewood was allegedly sexually assaulted by three persons at an isolated place, police had said on Sunday.
The alleged incident occurred on May 15. The woman approached the police station along with her husband in the wee hours of May 18 to lodge a complaint. Rekha Sharma, NCW chairperson in a letter to Rajasthan DGP Kapil Garg said, "The NCW is deeply disturbed by the media report captioned 'Married Woman gang-raped by three in Rajasthan's Bikaner on May 20".
Sharma said NCW is seriously concerned about the recent rise in heinous crimes targeted against women in Rajasthan despite the enactment of the Criminal Law Amendment Act 2013. "Considering the gravity of the matter, it is requested to ensure swift and speedy investigation in the matter and the Commission may be apprised about any action taken in the matter at an early date," she added.
