A selfie clicked with a rape survivor has brought a member of the Rajasthan State Commission for Women, Somya Gurjar, under fire prompting the chairperson of the commission, Suman Sharma, to seek a written explanation.
Interestingly, the Chairperson Suman Sharma is also in the selfie along with the member Somya Gurjar.
“I was talking to the victim when the member of the commission clicked these selfies. I am not aware when she (Somya Gurjar) clicked. I do not favour such act and has sought a written explanation from her. She has been asked to submit the explanation by tomorrow,” Sharma told PTI.
Both Gurjar and Sharma are in the selfie which was clicked when they went to meet the woman at the Mahila police station (Jaipur North).
“I am not justifying the ‘selfie’ and the one who circulated picture, has shown disrespect to the rape survivor. We will take note of it,” said Suman Sharma to ANI, “Doctors and police asked us to help her get normal, so thats the process of the investigation to get statement recorded right.”
The 30-year-old woman was allegedly raped by her husband and his two brothers in Alwar district for not giving Rs 51,000 as the dowry. An FIR has been registered and an investigation in the case has been initiated.
