Lekhi allegedly revealed a part of the journalist's name on Twitter.
A NCW member said they have asked Lekhi why she revealed the woman's name and regretted that a "responsible" person like Lekhi made such a "mistake".
Lekhi was given 24 hours time to reply. Divulging the identity of a victim in such cases can be punished under Section 228A of the Indian Penal Code.
Lekhi said it was a concerted effort to malign her
The BJP spokesperson, however, rubbished the allegations and counter-charged that somebody had misused her mobile phone while it was left unattended in a car. She also accused the NCW of acting like a tool of the Congress and not towards protecting the victims of heinous crimes like rape. Lekhi said it was a deliberate attempt to malign her for a tweet that existed in her account for a few moments.
Lekhi said her email account, including the Facebook one, has been hacked. She, however, hasn't lodged any police complaint, saying as a lawyer she knows nothing happens and hence didn't bother to file a complaint.
The BJP spokesperson also suspected that the entire episode was a deliberate ploy. She said the media didn't report when she worked towards freedom of the press during the Delhi gangrape case.
