Patna,Nov 5(UNI) Bihar State Women's Commission today announced that it would organise camps at block and district level throughout the state to redress grievances of the fair sex in rural areas and also inform them about their rights.
In her first interaction with newspersons after assuming charge of chairperson of the commission, Ms Lesi Singh said the cases of atrocities against rural women usually remained unreported due to ignorance among them about their rights to protect themselves.
'' In the camps to be organised at block level, efforts would be made to redress the grievances of victims at the spot and rural women would also be encouraged to register complaints with the commission if they were subjected to any sort of torture,'' she said adding clearance of a large number pending cases at commision would be her other priority.
When asked about steps to be taken for ensuring justice to family of Reshma who was allegedly killed after being raped by JD(U) MLA Anant Singh, the Chairperson said the commision would try its best to provide justice to her kin once her address was ascertained.
She said Ms Reshma had not mentioned her address in the letter to the Chief Minister, apprehending threats on her life from JD(U) MLA.
