In a knee-jerk reaction, Delhi Police on Thursday held a meeting with the heads of top BPO companies operating in and around Delhi.
Police said they might initiate an action against the cab driver who dropped the victim on the Ring Road instead of dropping her outside
her rented premises—100 metres away.
Police said the victim and her colleague were being dropped at the same spot for the past three years.
“They never insisted on taking the cab inside the alley. The driver should have insisted. We conducted a meeting with the BPO representatives to discuss these loopholes,” said HGS Dhaliwal, deputy commissioner of police (south).
The victim, who works in a Gurgaon BPO, had come to the capital three years ago and was staying with her sister in a rented accomodation in Moti Village near Dhaula Kuan.
An NGO which works for the welfare of northeast people, the Northeast Helpline, demanded that a separate helpline be set up by police with an officer, preferably from the northeast region, heading it.
"We are also want that night patrolling be enhanced in areas like Mohammedpur, Nanakpura, New Friends Colony, North Delhi campus, Nehru Basti and Gandhi Basti where northeast people live,” NE Helpline spokesperson Madhu Chandra said.
The NE Helpline alleged that call-centre cabs drop women on main roads late at night and they have to walk home.
“Most of these women will be protected if Delhi Police enhances night patrolling,” Chandra said.
