The DCW chief: “I had gone to meet her to discuss women safety issues. I proposed that there should be one day reserved for issues related to women in Parliament and she liked my idea.”

In yet another case of crime against women, a 22-year-old girl was eve-teased on a Mumbai local train last night.

As per the reports, the assailant managed to jump off the train before he could be caught. However, the suspect has been caught on a CCTV camera.

She said: “We have taken cognizance of Meenakshi’s murder and we have sought some information from the Police Commissioner. Basically, we want to understand how many complaints were registered in the Police Station? How many complaints were given by women for crime against women? And out of these complaints, how many FIRs have got registered? And in how many cases Police protection was given to the victims? And in how many cases the chargesheet has happened?”

“We intend to study this entire detail and we are taking Anand Parbat Police Station as a pilot project. We are going to get all this information out, study it in detail and give recommendations to the Central Government, to the LG, to State government and to police,” she added.
