New Delhi, March 1 (IANS) Taking note of an incident wherein a DU student was hit by a liquid-filled balloon, a National Commission Women (NCW) team visited Lady Sri Ram (LSR) College here and met with Principal and others to take stock of the situation.
“The NCW took suo motu cognisance and sent a two-member team to the LSR to meet the student as well as faculty. We also took police along,” NCW Acting Chairperson Rekha Sharma said on Thursday.
The NCW said the team interacted with the Principal, faculty members, and student representatives, apart from holding consultations with the SHO concerned.
However, the female student who underwent the ordeal refused to meet the team.
“Based on the interactions and after assessing concerns of the students, the NCW team suggested for increased police patrolling in the area. The phone numbers of beat Constables were also shared with college authorities to enable female students to contact them whenever needed,” the commission said.
In an Instagram posting on February 24, an LSR College student said a balloon filled with a liquid was thrown at her in Amar Colony market in Lajpat Nagar and it left white marks on her black leggings as it dried.
