Police asks DCW chief, on hunger strike, to vacate Jantar Mantar premises

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Police on Tuesday requested Delhi Commission For Women chief Swati Maliwal to vacate the Jantar Mantar premises, citing a Supreme Court guideline that prohibits protests at the venue after 5 pm.

Maliwal sat on a hunger strike at the venue to protest against the recent rape incidents in the country. She refused to listen to police's request.
