The Maharashtra State Commission for Women has written to the Mumbai Police Commissioner requesting that model and social media influencer Uorfi Javed’s demand for security be investigated, an official said.
Javed had submitted a letter of complaint to the MSCW alleging that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Chitra Wagh had filed a complaint against her for political mileage and threatened to hit her while interacting with the media. Javed stated she felt unsafe outside her home, the official said Tuesday.
In her letter, Javed demanded safety and the MSCW asked the Mumbai Police to take serious notice of her complaint, the official said.
Last week, Javed called MSCW President Rupali Chakankar. “The MSCW wrote a letter to the Mumbai Police Commissioner on Monday asking the police to investigate Uorfi Javed’s demand for security,” the official said.
Mumbai Police recorded a statement from Javed on Saturday in connection with a complaint lodged against her by Chitra Wagh. Wagh, head of Maharashtra BJP’s women’s wing, had filed a complaint against Javed for ‘inappropriate’ dress in public places.
