The Delhi Commission for Women on Friday issued a notice to Delhi Police looking for lodging of FIR and arrests in case where a woman was mercilessly thrashed in Delhi’s Paschim Vihar.
The DCW was approached by the Resident Welfare Association and some locals of the area who alleged that the girl was being held captive and tortured by the accused.
पश्चिम विहार की RWA से काफ़ी लोग मुझसे मिलने आए। उन्होंने मुझे ये विडीओ दिखायी कि कैसे लड़की को बेरहमी से एक आदमी मार रहा है। उनका कहना है ऐसा हर दूसरे दिन होता है। मैंने दिल्ली पुलिस को नोटिस इशू किया है। FIR दर्ज कर सख़्त से सख़्त कार्यवाही और लड़की की सुरक्षा होनी ही चाहिए! pic.twitter.com/rwYRi22iXj— Swati Maliwal (@SwatiJaiHind) February 11, 2022
The locals also gave the Commission CCTV recording which evidently displayed a man running after a girl and brutally thrashing her in public. It can be noticed that the girl is trying to flee from the man who is attacking her.
According to locals, girl's life was under threat and told that the merciless beatings were a common sight. Seeing the severity of the matter and for ensuring the safety of the girl, the DCW has issued a notice to city police seeking FIR and arrest of the accused.
The DCW has asked the Delhi Police to probe the matter and give details of arrests. They have also been asked to ensure the girl's safety after her rescue. The Delhi Police has been given 48 hours to provide a detailed action taken report in the matter.
DCW Chief Swati Maliwal said, "I am very agitated after seeing the CCTV footage as the man can be seen mercilessly beating the girl. I thank the RWA representatives and residents of the locality who brought the matter to our notice. Delhi Police must register an FIR and ensure safety for the girl. The Commission shall try and get to the root of the matter and help the girl in all possible ways."
