The Gautam Budh Nagar district magistrate on Saturday asked police and administrative officials to strictly enforce women safety, curb illegal trafficking of animals and maintain cleanliness in public offices in the district.

The district magistrate also said that police personnel must keep in mind not to harass consenting couples, which will be considered as abuse of law and swift action will be taken against the official concerned. He sent a message across to the recently formed ‘anti-Romeo squads’ to strictly follow the law.

The district magistrate, NP Singh, in a detailed meeting with the police and administrative officials held at camp office in Noida, also directed them to implement fresh mandates issued by the newly elected government.

“The law and order in the district must be maintained as per the wishes of the new government,” Singh said. He further directed the officials to take strict action to ensure women safety, curb illegal trafficking of animals in the district. And at the same time, he warned officials of swift action against them if anyone is found to be exploiting or abusing the law.


“Women safety and empowerment should be the top priority. Special measures should be enforced in the district to ensure safety of women in crowded places, or places where women are susceptible to harassment,” Singh said.

Singh said that illegal trafficking of animals, cruelty against them and illegal slaughtering will not be tolerated in the district, and directed all officials to pay special attention to maintain cleanliness in public offices, as per the directions of the Chief Minister.
