The Bihar police is determined to act tough against habitual offenders who give missed calls to girls.

Should anyone do that, it would be enough to book you under the law as would be, if you are following any girl or woman.

Besides, anybody found to have installed hidden cameras in hotel rooms, bathrooms, trial rooms in shops or any place, which could affect people's right to privacy, would also have to face the music.

SP (weaker section), CID, Harpreet Kaur said this on the conclusion of the two-day workshop on ''women''s empowerment'' organised in the chamber of IG (CID) Arvind Pandey.

All woman station house officers (SHOs) of Bihar were present at the workshop, which was addressed by the IG also.

Pandey said, around 65 workshops have been so far organised in different schools and colleges to tell the girls about the necessary precautions they should take while travelling, using mobile phones or social networking sites or while at public places.

Pandey said girls have also been apprised of the adverse impact of elopement and how one wrong decision could make their life miserable.

"It is a fact that mostly minors come under such influence and so we have been focusing on them to make them aware, as well as strong," he added.

All the SHOs have been asked to visit schools and colleges in their respective areas, while Kaur has been asked to take the lead in making it a campaign in Patna.
