New Delhi: Somya Gurjar, Rajasthan State Commission for Women member, thought it appropriate on Wednesday that she should click a selfie with a rape survivor.

Somya, along with the Chairperson of the women commission Suman Sharma, had yesterday gone to the Mahila police station at North Jaipur to meet a rape victim.

In a picture of the Somya taking a selfie clicked by a third person gathered in the room, the State Commission member is seen posing a selfie alongside with the rape survivor while the chairperson held the hand of the survivor.



Suman Sharma, when asked about this insensitive gesture, said, "I was talking to the victim when the member of the commission clicked these pictures. I am not aware when she clicked. I do not favour such acts and have sought a written explanation from her. She has been asked to submit the application by tomorrow."
