NEW DELHI: Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal on Tuesday visited the 85-year-old woman who was allegedly thrashed by her 60-year-old daughter. The incident was caught on camera and the video was widely circulated on social media.

DCW officials said the commission had written to the police commissioner, seeking action against the daughter of the woman and measures to prevent her from entering the building where the octogenarian resides.

The panel recorded the statements of the neighbours regarding the incident.

The commission has written to the ADM Senior Citizen Tribunal, recommending penal action against the daughter, provision of maintenance and protection of the mother.

The commission has deputed two counsellors to look after the old lady round-the-clock.
