West Bengal,Immigration/Law/Rights, Sat, 31 Mar 2012 IANS

Kolkata, March 31 (IANS) Amid reports of a large number of rape cases across West Bengal, a delegation of National Commission for Women (NCW) is scheduled to visit Kolkata April 2 to meet government officials.


NCW member secretary Anita Agnihotri will lead the delegation.


"She will meet state government officials April 3," said Sunanda Mukherjee, chairperson, West Bengal Commission for Women.


Mukherjee, however, denied any knowledge of the NCW delegation meeting the rape victims.


"I really don't know whether they (NCW) will meet the rape victims or not," she said.


In the last ten months of the Mamata Banerjee-led regime, a number of rape cases have come to light through the media.


The efforts of the West Bengal administration, led by the state's first woman Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, to play down an Anglo-Indian woman's complaint of being "raped at gun point" after late night partying on fashionable Park Street raised the hackles of rights bodies and eminent people.


Banerjee has also denied reports of a widow being raped in Katwa area of Burdwan district by terming it as a 'cooked up' case.
