New Delhi, Feb 6, (ANI): The National Commission for Women (NCW) on Friday decided not to accept the report filed by its member Nirmala Venkatesh on the Mangalore pub attacks.
However, Venkatesh has said that she stands by her report on the pub assault.
NCW chairperson Girija Vyas held a meeting here on Friday and took stock of the entire report and decided not to accept it.
The Commission will not send a fresh team to Mangalore as an independent commission from the Women and Child Development Ministry has already visited there.
The Ministry had issued a show cause notice yesterday to Venkatesh for not submitting her report on the case.
NCW had earlier formed a three-member team, led by Venkatesh. The team visited Mangalore pub on a fact-finding mission after the attack on girls by Sri Ram Sena activists.
Venkatesh had blamed the pub owners for not ensuring enough security for girls that led to the attack. (ANI)
