New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS) The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) on Saturday wrote to Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi seeking information on the number of complaints of crime against women.

In a letter, DCW chief Swati Maliwal sought information on the number of complaints, including that of rape and molestation in the city, especially in the Anand Parbat area.
