The Ashok Gehlot government sent on compulsory retirement two police personnel, who were involved in raping women. Diya Kumari said it has become difficult for women to get out of the house. The fear of police among the criminals has also ended because police officers have also been found involved in the misdeeds, the MP claimed.
Incidents of robbery and rape have become common in police stations and in such a situation, the NCW should take stern action.
Rekha Sharma said that the situation in Rajasthan is indeed worrisome. Several memorandums have been submitted to the state government but no response has been received. She said that she will seek answers from the state government on all matters.
Expressing displeasure over the apathy of the Rajasthan government, Sharma said that it has been more than two years but the state commission for women has not yet been set up. In the absence of a chairperson, there is nobody to hear the miseries faced by the women.
