HYDERABAD: Cyberabad authorities has established a pilot project deploying three exclusive patrol vehicles to rescue girls confronting domestic violence and sexual abuse. In the new system, the minute a distress call is received on dial-100, cops assigned to the vehicles swing in to action. Authorities think that swift response time is essential to save the sufferer.
The patrolling vehicles have been put to be made accessible at Jagathgirigutta, Miyapur and Rajendranagar police channels. Depending on the outcome, the job would be expanded to other regions in Cyberabad. In every one of those vehicles, there’ll be a single girl constable and two other policemen.
Whenever a girl dials 100, the local authorities would be alarmed about the circumstance. “When the caller is a girl, who’s in need of urgent assistance, the woman constable on the local patrolling automobile will reach out to her. She’ll speak with the sufferer and do the needful with the assistance of her coworkers on the patrolling group,” explained Cyberabad commissioner VC Sajjanar. The rescued person is going to be counselled and mandatory action initiated against the accused.
In 2019, the entire number of cases enrolled from town beneath offense against girls were two,828. Officials stated that the choice to begin the exclusive patrol car for girls was taken after seeing a quick surge in domestic violence cases throughout the lockdown.
“Through the lockdown, there have been eve-teasing and stalking cases. But majority of instances regarding girls were associated with domestic violence. In a bid to deal with any criticism regarding offenses against women, a decision was taken to begin 24×7 committed patrol vehicle. Our employees will work in three shifts,” said deputy commissioner of police, Anasuya.
Currently, police argue that the response period of patrolling parties is usually between five and seven minutes.
