The National Commission for Women (NCW) has written to the Director General of Police, Maharashtra regarding usage of objectionable, derogatory, sexual remarks and obscene signs on social media by a renowned venture investor Shri Mahesh Murthy, owner of Seedfund; based on a complaint filed by a woman in Delhi.


NCW has also, along with the letter, sent various media reports during the year wherein many other women have made similar complaints against Mahesh Murthy. NCW also highlighted that the commission also received a similar complaint from another woman early this year.


Even though Shri Murthy has allegedly already posted an apology for some of his posts, NCW, in its letter to the Maharashtra DGP, requested for the DGP’s personal involvement to investigate the matter and take strict action as per law and procedure against the accused as such acts not only amount to outraging the modesty of women but also attract action for cyber crime.


NCW has further requested the DGP to apprise the commission about the details of the case along with action taken report in the matter within 15 days from the date of issue of the said letter.
