    The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has launched an inquiry into repeated incidents of inappropriate behavior towards women during college festivals. This comes after students at Indraprastha College for Women alleged sexual harassment during a fest. The women’s panel has issued summonses to Delhi Police and Delhi University officials to appear before it on April 6. The inquiry is aimed at creating strong systems to deter such incidents in the future.

    The DCW had earlier issued notices to Delhi Police and IP College to inquire into the specific case of harassment. According to reports, some men scaled the walls of the college during a fest on March 28 and harassed several students. Similar incidents have also been reported in some DU colleges in the past.

    In 2020, people forced their way into Gargi College premises during a fest and molested girl students. Again, in 2022, male students forced their way into Miranda College and harassed girl students. These incidents are happening repeatedly in DU colleges and raise serious concerns regarding the safety of girl students, especially during college fests.

    Taking action in the matter, the DCW chief has issued summonses to the registrar of Delhi University and Joint Commissioner of Police, Special Police Unit for Women and Children (SPUWAC), seeking an action taken report in the matter. The DCW hopes that this inquiry will lead to the creation of stronger systems to ensure the safety of women during college festivals.
