The first all-women police station in Arunachal Pradesh has started functioning to specifically deal with crimes against women.


With the opening of the all-women police station on Tuesday, the state government has sent a clear message to ensure better safety and security to women, SP Surendra Kumar said on Thursday.

The plan to set up the maiden all-women police station was mooted by the state government days after the Delhi gang-rape incident and the proposal was approved by the state cabinet on February 6, official sources said.

The cabinet had also approved for creation of separate cells in all 17 district headquarters as well as at the police headquarters in Itanagar to tackle crimes against women.

Currently, the process of special recruitment drive to recruit 200 women police personnel is in progress to run those cells, the sources said.
