Bengaluru molestation: NCW notices to Parameshwara, Abu Azmi

The National Commission for Women (NCW) has issued notices to Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara and Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi for allegedly making sexist comments regarding the molestation of women by a mob on New Year's Eve in Bengaluru.

NCW chief Lalitha Kumaramangalam said while notices were issued to Parameshwara and Azmi, a letter was sent to the Karnataka government on Monday to know about the action taken in the molestation case.


"We have asked the minister to explain his statement and tender a public apology, failing which we will take further action. We have given him five days to reply," Kumaramangalam reportedly said.

The Karnataka Home Minister, however, was reportedly to have said that his comments were interpreted out of context by the media and and was not taken in its entirety.
