A selfie with a rape survivor in Jaipur has landed the Chairperson of Rajasthan State Commission for Women and its member in trouble as the National Commission for Women has summoned them after reprimanding for a “very insensitive” act.
The Chairperson of NCW today ticked off Somya Gurjar, member of Rajasthan State Commission for Women, and Suman Sharma, who heads the state panel, and asked them to present themselves before the body on July 4.
The selfie was clicked by Gurjar yesterday when she, along with chairperson, had met a rape survivor at a mahila police station in Jaipur North district.
The selfie also features the head of the state’s commmission for women, who in her defence claimed that she was “not aware” as to when the selfie was taken and has sought an explanation from Gurjar.
In the pictures aired by various media outlets, Gurjar is seen holding the mobile device and the chairperson (Sharma) is also seen looking into the frame (of the selfie).
The 30-year-old woman they were clicking selfie with is from Alwar who was allegedly raped by her husband and his two brothers and also had expletives tattooed on her body for not giving a dowry of Rs 51,000, according to the complaint.
