The commission has also asked to provide the list of police checkposts in the route of the car which hit the woman, aged around 20.

"Was the car stopped by any police personnel and the accused persons were checked for the alcohol intake by them? Please provide details," the DCW asked.

It also sought to know "why no PCR or police personnel stopped the car from dragging the girl for several km?"
