Taking strong objection to alleged improper comments made by SP leader Narinder Bhati against suspended IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal, social activist Nutan Thakur on Saturday filed a complaint with the National Commission for Women against the UP Agro chairman.

Ms Thakur raised objections over the alleged usage of words like “aurat” and “behudgi” against the IAS officer, who clamped on sand mining mafia in Gautam Budh Nagar, in a video footage.

“I watched the video on Youtube where a lot of time beep was used. Moreover, usage of words like ‘aurat’ and ‘behudgi’ are abjectly improper and I have written a letter to Mamata Sharma, chairperson of the NCW to take cognisance of this serious issue and enquire into the matter. I have also requested her to initiate all legal proceedings as per the enquiry report,” she said.

The video footage of the Samajwadi Party minister showed him saying how he got the IAS officer suspended in 41 minutes.

Ms Thakur had earlier also filed a PIL in the Allahabad High Court for a direction to Department of Personnel and Training (cadre controlling authority of IAS officers) to summon the file related to the suspension of Ms Nagpal and cancelling the suspension if it was found to be illegal and improper.

The NCW Chairperson, however, said that she has not yet received the complaint.

“I have not yet received any such complaint. If we get a complaint, we will definitely enquire into the matter and do the needful,” Sharma told PTI.
