NCW to send notice to Gujarat government on snooping

New Delhi, Nov 20 : The National Commission for Women (NCW) Wednesday said it will send notice to the Gujarat government on alleged illegal surveillance of a young woman by Gujarat Police.

"We will send a notice to the Gujarat government asking them to explain whether they followed due process before orders were given to put a young woman under surveillance," NCW member Nirmala Samant Prabhavalkar told reporters here.

Prabhavalkar said the commission will also send a letter to the union home ministry seeking a probe into the matter.

According to two investigative websites, three key wings of Gujarat Police misused their powers to stalk an unmarried young woman from Bangalore in 2009 under orders from then minister of state for home Amit Shah who did it for his "saheb".
