The police will maintain a register of sexual offenders and their names will be displayed on its official website, Inspector General (Law and Order) Sanjay Kundu said in a statement. "This will probably make Himachal the first state to adopt a standard procedure to deal with crime related to sexual offences," he said. 

He said a decision in this regard was taken at a meeting chaired by Director General of Police B Kamal Kumar on Tuesday.

It was also decided that gender-sensitisation training would be organised for all the police personnel.
