New Delhi: Taking suo motu of a media report that a 21-year-old Dalit woman was allegedly gang-raped and killed by three persons including two police personnel on June 20 in Bikaner district, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Tuesday issued notices to Rajasthan government and state police.

The Rights body said it has issued notices to the State Chief Secretary and Director General of Police, calling for a detailed report in the matter within four weeks.

The NHRC said the report should include the present status of the investigation being conducted in the matter by the police, departmental action taken against the public servants, and arrest of the third accused.

According to the media report, carried on June 22, both policemen had been suspended and the matter is being investigated, the Commission said in a statement.
