New Delhi: The National Commission of Women (NCW) on the complaints of harassment by females of Bhattar-Parsaul, has formed a five member committee to look into the allegations more minutely.

District Magistrate and Superintendent of Police of Gautambudh Nagar in the harassment case have already been summoned by the NCW on different dates.

The entire issue came to the limelight when Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi after visiting Bhatta Parsaul raised voice against the harassment on females.

Following which, a team of NCW inspected the place on May 12. However, they did not get any proof of harassment done to the women. “No specific case of rape has been confirmed by the Inquiry Committee," Women and Child Welfare Minister Krishna Tirath said in reply to a written question in the Parliament on August 12.

However, National Commission for Scheduled Tribes (NCST) toured the village and asked the DM and SSP to register the complaints in this regard. Recently few females told NCW members that they were compelled by the police team to change their statement.
