Ensure safety of women: NCW to Govt

The chairperson of the National Commission for Women Mamata Sharma on Wednesday suggested a slew of measures to ensure safety and security of women in the state. During his hurricane visit to Guwahati on Wednesday, Sarma asked Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi to provide government job for the molestation victim apart from proper counseling and rehabilitation.


Talking to reporters, she said that the Commission asked for better police surveillance with presence of women personnel in the entire state. She said that the Chief Minister has accepted her recommendation. She criticized the role of police in the entire incident saying that police needed 45 minutes to arrived in the spot.
The NCW has asked Dispur to book the culprits and punish as per law and redressal of the grievances on a speedy basis and a time-bound manner by a fast-track court.
