A member of the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR), who had said that the allegations of Tamil Nadu Governor R.N. Ravi that forced virginity tests (two-finger tests) were being performed on alleged victims of child marriage in Chidambaram were true, submitted “a copy of the report” to the Governor at the Raj Bhavan in Chennai. The Raj Bhavan, in a social media post, said the NCPCR member, R.G. Anand, “met the Governor and presented a copy of the report on their investigation into the forced virginity tests on minor girls from the Dikshitar community in Chidambaram”.
