NCW not to accept member’s report on pub attacks

The National Commission for Women decided not to accept the report filed by Nirmala Venkatesh on the Mangalore pub attacks.

The National Commission for Women on Friday decided not to accept the report filed by one of its members Nirmala Venkatesh on the Mangalore pub attacks,a week after she visited the site and blamed security lapse for the incident.

At a meeting in New delhi on Friday,the NCW took stock of the entire report filed by Venkatesh and decided not to accept it,the Commission chairperson Girija Vyas said.

However,the NCW will not send a fresh team to Mangalore on a fact-finding mission as an independent commission from the Women and Child Development Ministry has already visited Mangalore for an on-the-spot assessment of the incident.

The move by NCW comes a day after the Women and Child Development Ministry issued a show cause notice to Venkatesh for not submitting her report on the case.
