New Delhi: The hot water over Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s ‘raped woman’ remark has still refused to turn tepid. The National Commission for Women (NCW) on Wednesday said that Salman had not tendered an apology for his remark.

The NCW had issued a notice to Salman Khan two days before seeking an explanation for why he had made the remark. When the actor failed to reply to the letter, the NCW asked Salman to apologise within seven days.

The NCW confirmed on Wednesday that they had received Salman’s reply from his lawyer, but the actor had refrained from admitting his mistake and apologising for the comment. NCW Chief, Lalitha Kumaramangalam, said, “We have received Salman Khan’s reply through his lawyer, he has not apologised; we are studying the reply.”

Earlier, during an event, Salman had been asked by reporters about the incident following which the actor said that the less he spoke the better it was for him.

The Sultan actor shot into the ire of national attention when he garrulously said that he felt like a “raped woman” after doing the wrestling stints for his film.
