Citing a media report, NCW member Soso Shaiza said the commission is seriously concerned about the "reported police apathy in the matter and negligence shown by the police despite the provision of zero FIR in the law".The media report said the SHO bickered with the victim over jurisdiction of where the complaint must be registered."Considering the gravity of the matter, it is requested that strict action be taken against erring officials and a detailed action taken report be sent to the Commission at an early date," Shaiza said.
