New Delhi: The National Commission for Women (NCW) on Tuesday said it has taken suo motu cognisance of videos purportedly showing women being beaten up in West Bengal’s Nandigram after the assembly election in the state. “The National Commission for Women (NCW) has come across several Twitter posts wherein some goons can be seen beating up women in Nandigram, West Bengal, post elections. The commission is deeply perturbed and has viewed this incident seriously as it questions the safety and security of women in the state,” a statement from the commission said.

“Chairperson Rekha Sharma has written to Director General of Police, West Bengal, to take immediate action and arrest the accused persons without any delay,” it added.

Several videos have been circulating since the West Bengal election results were announced which have left multiple BJP supporters dead. Furthermore, the party office of the BJP was set fire on Arambag in Hooghly district.

A team headed by the NCW chairperson will be visiting West Bengal for further inquiry into the matter, the statement said.
