After the actor's statement National Commission for Women chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam has sent a notice to Kamal demanding an apology for publicly naming the victim. "It is the duty and responsibility of every single man, including me, to safeguard and protect women", he said, adding the name of the actress should not be hidden.
