What steps are the police taking to curb such incidents?
The helpine (103) is very useful. It provides information and help will reach within three to ten minutes.
The Supreme Court has directed all states to post plainclothes women police officials at railway stations and other public places. Have the Mumbai police implemented this?
I have not heard about this directive so far and therefore cannot comment.
Many times the public chooses not to intervene when women are being harassed as they don’t want to get involved with the police. Is that a reason why such crimes are happening publicly?
People don’t want to get involved because of the legal troubles that will follow. Even the police can solve cases faster if witnesses cooperate.
