Giri, Delhi police differ over molestation case
New Delhi: Former Chairperson of the National Commission for Women V Mohini Giri has accused Delhi Police personnel of not attending a molestation victim in South Delhi's Vasant Kunj road, a claim refuted by the senior officials.
According to Giri, she had left her office in Qutub Institutional Area around 6 PM last Saturday when she came across a group of men "molesting" a girl.
She stopped a PCR van which was passing by from the area and asked its personnel to save the girl but she was told that the vehicle was rushing their "boss" somewhere. Another policeman asked her to file an FIR in the police station.
When Giri tried to intervene in the matter herself, a woman emerged from the onlookers and allegedly slapped the 76-year-old social activist.
Delhi Police top brass has initiated an inquiry into Giri's allegations after she wrote an email in this regard to the Delhi Police Commissioner. Police however, have denied that it was an incident of molestation and claimed that Giri misunderstood the situation.
"Two girls and two boys were going somewhere on two separate scooters when the boys vehicle had hit a roadside stall. Someone rushed the injured boy to hospital while a brawl ensued after the accident between the remaining boy, the two girls and the locals," said a police official.
During inquiry it has emerged that Giri had slapped the stall vendor following which a woman relative of his had attacked her.
