Injustice is being done to Arunima: NCW
New Delhi: The National Commission for Women on Wednesday said "injustice" is being done to athlete Arunima Sinha,
who lost her leg in an incident last month, maintaining that
she deserves a proper rehabilitation package to ensure her a
"life of dignity".
Acting NCW Chairperson Yasmeen Abrar went to the All India
Institute for Medical Sciences and talked to the national-
level volleyball player who is undergoing treatment there.
The 23-year-old had said she was pushed out of a moving
train by some robbers near Bareilly on April 11 but later
railway police raised questions over her version.
"Arunima stands by her version of the event and our
findings also till now do not indicate anything to the
contrary. We feel injustice is being done to her and she needs
a rehabilitation package which will ensure a life of dignity
for her," Abrar said.
She also expressed concern over increasing atrocities on
women across the country.
She said an NCW team will visit Farrukhabad in Uttar
Pradesh where a teenager was raped and murdered on April 13.
