A member of the Rajasthan State Commission for Women triggered a controversy on Wednesday, after taking a selfie with a domestic abuse victim. Chairperson of the commission Suman Sharma said her colleague Saumya Gurjar clicked the selfie to cheer up the “depressed” woman. “The other commission member took the picture without my knowledge; I don’t approve of it...Still, I have asked for a written reply.” Gurjar resigned later in the day, ANI reported.

Sharma, who also appears in the selfie, said Gurjar took the photograph after they heard the victim as part of their investigation into her complaint against her husband and in-laws. The woman had alleged that they tattooed abuses on her body for failing to pay dowry, The Indian Express reported.

Congress, which is in Opposition in the state, has accused the women’s panel as well as the Bharatiya Janata Party government in Rajasthan of insensitivity towards women. “Despite a court order, the FIR [into the victim’s complaint] was registered after 10 days. It shows the state government’s attitude towards women. The women’s commission is a statutory body, and this sort of conduct shows lack of commitment of office-bearers,” state Congress spokesperson Archana Sharma said.
