According to her statement, three other girls were also sexually harassed by the same person and four other girls faced harassment from other persons.
Akhand alleged in his petition that “Sexual assault of (the victim) and others is a cognisable offence under Section 354, 354-A and 354-B and the other relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Though two different complaints have been made in New Delhi and Kolkata, no FIR is registered by the police.”
He sought the intervention of the apex rights body to order Police to register a case in the matter and start a probe.
Hearing the petition the commission has issued direction that “it is seen that the complaint relates to the matter which is covered by a judicial verdict/decision of the Commission, hence the complaint can not be entertained by the Commission, as per Regulation 9(xii) of the N.H.R.C. (Procedure) Regulations, 1997.”
