BALANGIR STILL DEPRIVED OF MAHILA POLICE STATION
Wednesday, 30 April 2014 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
People of Balangir have expressed deep concern that the State Government is yet to pay any heed to their longstanding demand for establishment of a Mahila police station here.“Mahila police stations have been opened all over the country but the State Government has turned deaf years to our demand,” said a social activist here.
He reminded that two years ago, Joint Registrar (Law) and Focal Point Human Rights Defender, NHRC AK Parashar had expressed concern at a Mahila Adhikar workshop held here over non opening of a Mahila police station in the district.
The situation is that women generally fear to go alone to a general police station to lodge a complaint if anything bad happens to her. While women crime is increasing in proportion to the population, a Mahila police station has been a need here, said a housewife.
However, the district police administration has not lost hope for the same.The proposal for opening a Mahila police station has been sent to Government, said Bolangir SP Ravi Prakash.
