New Delhi: Rekha Sharma, chairperson of the National Commission for Women (NCW), on Sunday stated that she would visit Kerala on March 9 and take up the issue of alleged manhandling of a woman BJP leader by police in Kozhikode.

BJP Mahila Morcha state president Adv Niveditha took to Twitter to bring to the attention of NCW about the incident.

“BJYM leader Vismaya was brutally manhandled by a male police officer in Calicut as she was standing on the road while CM Pinarayi was passing, to protest against him in a democratic way. No law in the country authorises policemen to outrage the modesty of a girl,” Niveditha wrote in the tweet.

Quoting this, Mahila Morcha national Twitter handle wrote: “Law & Order situation in Kerala is disastrous and those supposed to guard are the violaters thanks to @CMOKerala @pinarayivijayan ji. We vehemently condemn manhandling of a woman protestor & request @NCWIndia to take action.”

Reacting to this, Rekha said: “I am going to Kerala on 9th March....Will take up this issue.”

The BJYM workers were waving black flags at the chief minister when his convoy was passing through when the alleged incident took place. They were protesting against the social security cess on fuel.
