Recognizing actor model Urfi Javed’s complaint against BJP leader Chitra Wagh, Rupali Chakankar, head of Maharashtra’s Women’s Commission, wrote a letter to Mumbai Police Commissioner Vivek Phansalkar on Tuesday asking him to take appropriate action.
She shared the letter on her social media and wrote, “Maharashtra State Commission for Women has received the complaint application from Urfi Javed. In this, the applicant states that I work in the fashion industry related to film, my living conditions and appearance are professionally necessary .”
Urfi further stated in her complaint that Chitra Wagh, despite not having any issues, has publicly threatened her through the media that she will attack Javed.
“Whether for political gain or personal publicity, Wagh’s threat indicates that I could be attacked. It creates an unsafe environment for me and I cannot move freely,” Urfi had told the women’s panel seeking safety .
Chakankar, further wrote, “The right of free movement is given to every Indian by the constitution, feeling unsafe in a city like Mumbai, the capital of Maharashtra, is a serious matter. Therefore, I urge the Mumbai Police Commissioner to take immediate action against the application,” she wrote.
The letter further read: “A report is to be filed immediately under section 12(2) and 12(3) of the Maharashtra State Commission for Women Act, 1993 in respect of the action taken.”
