New Delhi, Jan 31: Its a twist in the tale. The National Commission for Women (NCW) is accusing the pub-owner of Amnesia club for the Mangalore pub attack. Instead of Sri Ram Seneactivists, the owner of the pub is blamed for not providing proper security for the women.

The head of the National Commission for Women's fact finding commission, Nirmala Venkatesh said: "We have visited the pub and there was no security. They haven't taken any security measures and there wasn't even a security guard there. The National Women Commission is going to recommend that the pub's licence be cancelled," she said.

Nirmala said that she met with the culprits in the jail and heard their stories. "I went to even meet the culprits in the jail, I was with them for more than an hour. I even counselled them. I just wanted to know what is in their mind. I have even warned them that they are no body to take the law in their hands and beat up women," she said.

"The culprits said they did not go with then intention of beating the women, we wanted to stop the live band and other activities that are spoiling the girls. They said the women were wearing skimpy clothes and dancing and that is the reason the incident took place, said the culprits. they are now repenting their actions," she added.

Nirmala asked women to protect themselves. "The lesson to be learnt for women out of this incident is that we should try and safeguard ourselves," she concluded.
