Lucknow: The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has hit out at the National Commission for Women (NCW) for their claim that women were raped by Uttar Pradesh policemen in Bhatta and Parsaul.
National Commission for Women acting Chairperson Yasmeen Abrar on Saturday alleged that crime against woman in Uttar Pradesh is very high and demanded an enquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the violence and alleged police atrocities in Bhatta and Parsaul villages of Greater Noida.
BSP on Saturday issued a statement saying that the NCW chief is perhaps trying to show her loyalty to the Congress by making false allegations of molestation of women in Bhatta and Parsaul villages.
CNN-IBN had on Friday accessed details of the NCW Report on Bhatta and Parsaul villages.
The report alleged that policemen tore clothes of women, paraded them naked and threatened villagers. The NCW Report, based on its visit to the affected areas on May 12, said that about 10-12 policemen tore clothes of women, paraded them naked and teased them.
BSP also said that the Prime Minister should immediately dissolve the NCW and induct only those who have no political ambitions in the new panel.
