After a video of a security guard allegedly harassing women at a Paying Guest (PG) Hostel in Delhi's Karol Bagh went viral, the Delhi Commission for Women has sought action and has issued a notice to Delhi Police to file a First Information Report (FIR) in the case.
The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) said they have taken a suo-moto cognizance after a video clip was posted on Twitter, where a security guard at Golds Villa PG, Karol Bagh was seen forcefully grabbing a woman and harassing her.
The women's panel said a complaint was earlier made to the owner of the hostel, but no action was taken.
DCW chief Swati Maliwal tweeted about the incident and said the security guard was drunk and they have "received a complaint through Twitter, in view of the seriousness of the matter, a notice has been issued to the police."
