The National Commission for Women (NCW) has directed the DGP of Uttar Pradesh to register an FIR under relevant sections against Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati. The direction came after videos of his alleged speech went viral on Twitter.
NCW India cited a video shared by Vinod Kapri on the basis of which it concluded that Yati Narsinghanand had made “inappropriate remarks for Women and using indecent words”. Vinod Kapri had tagged NCW in his tweet.
