A selfie clicked by the member of Rajasthan State Commission for Women with a rape survivor courted controversy prompting the chairperson of the commission to seek a written explanation. Somya Gurjar clicked the selfie on Tuesday when she along with chairperson Suman Sharma went to meet the woman at the Mahila police station.

Incidentally, in both the pictures that are going viral on social media, Gurjar is seen holding the mobile device and the chairperson is seen looking into the frame.

Distancing herself from the incident, the chairman of the Commission said, "I was talking to the victim when the member of the commission clicked these selfies. I am not aware when she (Somya Gurjar) clicked. I do not favour such acts and has sought a written explanation from her. She has been asked to submit the explanation by tomorrow."

In a shocking incident in Alwar district, a 30-year-old woman was allegedly raped by her husband and his two brothers who tattooed expletives on her forehead and hand for not giving Rs 51,000 as the dowry.

On Monday, an FIR was registered under sections of 498-A (Protection of Women Against Domestic Violence Act), 376 (punishment for rape) and 406 (punishment for criminal breach of trust) of IPC and an investigation in the case has been initiated.
