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.

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
