Q. When did you first ask Salman Khan to appear in the MSCW office?
A. We sent the actor a legal notice about his, "I feel like a raped woman" remark on June 22, asking him or his advocate to appear before the Commission on June 29. None of them did.
Q. There is a parallel inquiry going on at the National Commission for Women (NCW) in Delhi. When the NSW has taken up the matter, why should the MSCW also do so?
