New Delhi: Backing Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi’s stance on Bhatta Parsaul, a report prepared by the National Commission for Women (NCW) on the controversial land agitation mentions killings and rape during the clash between the farmers and the policemen.

The NCW prepared its report after visiting the controversial site and will be submitting the report to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday.

In its report on the farmers' agitation and subsequent police atrocities, NCW has alleged that policemen tore clothes of women and paraded them naked.

After the report, Rahul’s claims are likely to get momentum as commission has confirmed his allegations to a large extent.
Earlier, Mayawati government had dismissed all his claims.

According to sources, NCW in its report has said that about 10-12 policemen tore clothes of women, paraded them naked and teased them. The report has also mentioned that the policemen went around the village at night and threatened the villagers from speaking out. They also reportedly barged into the villagers' houses, dragged women out and misbehaved with them.
The report also said that women of the villages confessed of seeing bodies being burnt.

On the basis of its report, NCW has raised questions on why no FIR has been lodged against the local administration.
