Stripping case: NHRC notice to Delhi Police
New Delhi: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) will issue notice to the Delhi Police on a woman being allegedly forced to strip before her son at a west Delhi police post last month, an official said on Friday.
Three constables, including a woman head constable, were Thursday suspended and an assistant sub-inspector was transferred pending an inquiry into the matter.
"The commission has taken a decision to take suo motu cognisance of the alleged case of stripping of a woman in a police post and issue notice to the Delhi Police commissioner and maybe to the Delhi chief secretary over the same," the NHRC official told a news agency.
The police personnel were suspended after a 30-year-old woman, a resident of Mayapuri slum area, alleged that she was forced to strip May 22 by the police in front of her 12-year-old son whom they accused of stealing money from a car.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (west Delhi) Sharad Aggarwal had ordered an inquiry into the matter.
"Three constables, including a woman head constable, have been suspended and an assistant sub-inspector of Mayapuri police station has been transferred. Now a vigilance inquiry will take place to find out the facts," a senior police official said.
