Chandigarh, Sep 25, 2023- The National Commission for Women (NCW) on Monday sought a report within three days regarding the gang rape of three women last week in Haryana’s Panipat district by four masked armed assailants in the presence of the victims’ family members, which included children.
“Deeply disturbed by the horrifying incident in Panipat, Haryana. Three women gang-raped in front of their families. We strongly condemn this heinous act. Demanding swift action: fair investigation, invoking relevant IPC provisions, immediate arrests, and free medical care for the victims. We expect a detailed report within 3 days,” said the NCW in a post on X, formerly Twitter.
