Police inaction: NHRC seeks report from Delhi Police chief
New Delhi: National Human Rights Commission on Wednesday sought a report from the Delhi Police Commissioner regarding allegations of non-registration of a complaint filed by a teenage trafficking victim.
The direction came after the Commission took suo motu cognisance of a media report that police did not register the complaint of the 15-year-old girl.
The rights panel asked the Police Commissioner to file a report within four weeks.
According to media reports, the incident happened on January 4 in East Delhi.
"The girl somehow managed to escape. When she went to the police station, Usmanpur, her complaint was not registered. The family members of the victim also tried to contact the helpline 181 but no assistance was provided.
"The Commission in its notice to the Commissioner of Police, Delhi has observed that the contents of the press report, if true, raise a serious issue of violation of human rights of the victim," an NHRC spokesperson said.
