The National Commission for Women (NCW) asked Tik-Tok India to immediately remove a video showing a man committing violence against women and directed the Maharashtra police to take action against the person responsible for making the clip.
In a letter to Grievance Officer of Tik-Tok India Anuj Bhatia, NCW said it has come across a Twitter post in which a Tik-Tok video shows a man committing violence against women.
The commission asked Tik-Tok India to immediately remove the video and block the ID of the person who made it. In a letter to Maharashtra Director General of Police (DGP) Subodh Kumar Jaiswal, Sharma said the NCW condemns the video of the digital content creator promoting a grievous crime of acid attack among its young followers on social media.
“The commission is concerned about the safety and security of women and disturbed by the use of cyberspace to instigate crime against women,” Sharma said in the letter to Jaiswal. “Considering the sensitivity of the matter, it is requested that immediate action shall be taken as per the Information Technology Act, 2000 against the miscreants and an action-taken report sent to the commission,” She said.
