The National Commission for Women (NCW) on 28 March, 2017 issued suo-moto notice to Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria after his remarks on the Bikaner rape case.
Kataria has raised questions over the delay on part of the family in reporting the alleged rape of a minor by eight teachers in Bikaner in 2016.
Earlier on 26 March, 2017, reports emerged that the alleged victim of Bikaner rape case was diagnosed with cancer after sustaining bruises and injuries in her private parts due to sexual assault, where she was also forced to consume abortion pills by the perpetrators.
The victim's mother said that the girl sustained injuries on her private parts because of the sexual assault which led to cancer.
The matter came into light after the minor girl's father alleged that his daughter was raped by eight teachers of a private school who also made a video of the heinous act.
The alleged incident occurred in April, 2015 and the FIR was registered on 24 March, 2017 after the girl's father file a complaint.
