CHENNAI: Taking a serious note of the ghastly murder of a young woman by a youth on a railway platform in Chennai, the National Commission for Women sought action taken reports from the Tamil Nadu DGP and the general manager of Southern Railway.
The reports should be filed immediately by way of fax, insisted the commission in its suo motu notice today.
“Based on the report, the commission, as per its mandate, will take further course of action and if required shall constitute an inquiry committee which submits recommendations to the Government for taking such action as deemed fit against those allegedly involved in the crime,” the commission said in the notice.
Meanwhile, concerned over the murder and a string of law and order issues in Chennai and elsewhere in the State, the top brass of the Tamil Nadu government held a high-level meeting on Tuesday noon to review the situation.
The meeting at the secretariat, chaired by Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, who also holds the Home portfolio, was attended by DGP Ashok Kumar and Chennai city police commissioner TK Rajendran.
