GUWAHATI: National Commission for Women (NCW) chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam has said that the commission will summon Bollywood actor Salman Khan for his alleged derogatory remarks against women.

Talking to the media in Guwahati yesterday, she said that the commission has taken the matter seriously.

Referring to the recent incident of rape at Motihari in Bihar, Kumaramangalam questioned the political will of the state government in tackling crime against women.

She said that the commission will visit Bihar to take stock of the situation.

She said that the commission will also take up the matter with the Union Home Ministry.

Earlier, the NCW chief had sought a public apology from the Bollywood actor and asked for an explanation.

Salman made the comments during an interview with entertainment website spotboye.com to promote his upcoming movie ‘Sultan’ that tells the story of an ageing wrestler trying to make a comeback.

"When I used to walk out of the ring, after the shoot, I used to feel like a raped woman. I couldn't walk straight," the 50-year-old actor said earlier on June 21.
