The National Commission for Women (NCW) is in the process of reaching out to the survivors of sexual harassment as the #MeToo storm Tuesday intensified in the country with more women recounting their ordeal.
The movement, on the lines of the Hollywood's #MeToo, started after actor Tanushree Dutta alleged that Nana Patekar sexually harassed her on the sets of a movie in 2008. Patekar has rejected Dutta's allegations.
"We are also personally reaching out to the survivors telephonically," the official said.
