New Delhi: Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal on Monday wrote to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik, seeking registration of a case against persons threatening Kargil war martyr's daughter Gurmehar Kaur and their arrest.
Kaur met Maliwal earlier in the day and complained against online threats she was receiving ever since she stood up to RSS student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP).
"Taking cognisance of the complaint, I wrote a letter to the Delhi Police Commissioner and requested him to register an FIR against the culprits and arrest them," Maliwal told reporters here.
"It is a matter of shame that a martyr's daughter is being attacked like this and is threatened with rape and death. If no action is taken against the culprits right now, people will lose faith in the system," she said.
Lady Shri Ram College student Kaur posted a picture of her's holding a poster on Facebook that said: "I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me."
