Acting on media reports of a woman corporator’s complaints of harassment by an MLA going unheeded, the National Commission for Women (NCW) Thursday asked police to submit a report in the case in 10 days.
Shiv Sena’s Sheetal Mhatre had levelled allegations of harassment against party MLA Vinod Ghosalkar and his son, corporator Abhishek Ghosalkar. Mhatre had alleged that she was being threatened and harassed by Ghosalkar and his son as she had complained against a builder who had dumped debris in mangroves in Dahisar. She had taken up the matter with senior Sena leaders, including party executive president Uddhav Thackeray.
“The crimes allegedly committed by MLA Vinod Ghosalkar and his son should be investigated. These crimes result in molestation of a woman, slanderous campaign and insinuation against a woman and depriving modesty of a woman,” said NCW member Nirmala Sawant Prabhavalkar.
Even as he refrained from taking a stand on the issue, Uddhav Thackeray has asked Mhatre not to take a hasty decision of tendering her resignation. Thackeray said, “There are a lot of women in the country who are facing problems, the NCW should address their worries. It should not poke its nose into this issue.” He said he had directed senior party members to look into
