The women journalists also complained about rampant eve-teasing on the roads, in buses and autos plying in Mumbai. The Governor promised to speak to the chief minister, home minister and Mumbai police commissioner.
The delegation demanded stringent action against the five youths who gang raped a woman photo journalist intern inside a deserted mill compound in Mahalaxmi.
