On March 31, a woman officer on duty at a crossing in Odisha’s Puri district was attacked by two people after she stopped them for breaking traffic rules. The two had reportedly taken out their new car without a number plate when the women traffic police stopped them. She was beaten and her clothes torn.
The Delhi Police, on International Women’s Day, launched an all-women patrolling squad to protect women from harassment on the roads. “The initiative is aimed at motivating ‘female police personnel’ by making the system more inclusive and putting them in the lead of field policing. All in all, it is an effort to provide additional safeguards to women,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Romil Baaniya told IANS.
The woman patrolling squads are equipped with bikes, gypsy vans with women police officers in charge to lead the patrol team. “Women move around the city at all times. In this scenario, it was thought appropriate to have more women police officers on the roads to instill a sense of confidence among women,” the deputy commissioner said.
