Women and Child Welfare development minister Maneka Gandhi on Friday voiced her opinion on the rape’ remark controversy involving Bollywood actor Salman Khan.
According to CNN, Gandhi confronted the chief of the National Commission for Women (NCW) over summoning Salman Khan.
The channel quoted minister as saying “there was no need to give priority to the case against celebrities as there were several cases of rape pending with the panel.”
On the other hand, the Dabangg actor on Friday, defied National Commission for Women’s summons and did not appear before it to clarify his controversial ‘rape’remark,.
NCW said it received a legal response from Salman’s team and is evaluating the next step.
“It may be noted that today, i.e. 08.07.2016, Mr Khan or his legal team has not appeared before the Commission.
However, the Commission has received a response from his legal team, which is currently being examined by the Commission,” NCW said in a statement.
