Bhubaneswar: Members of the BJP Mahila Morcha today ransacked the office of the State Commission for Women in Bhubaneswar in protest of the gang rape and suicide of the Kunduli girl and demanded the probe report to be made public.

The women BJP workers barged into the commission's office and had a minor scuffle with police. Window panes of the office building were also damaged by the agitators while some activists hung bangles on the wall as a mark of protest.

BJP spokesperson Lekhashree Samantsinghar stated, "It does not seem that the women's commission is working for the safety of women. Instead the commission is safeguarding the interests of the ruling party. Therefore, the commission's office should be closed immediately."

Earlier yesterday, chief Minister Naveen Patnaik directed officials to expand the terms of reference for the judicial inquiry into the case.

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has also decided to constitute a special team to undertake a spot visit and probe the gang rape and subsequent suicide of the victim.
