Bihar police would soon organise workshops in every women's colleges in the state capital to help students fight exploitation. The workshops would also teach students on how to avoid getting trapped in MMS scandals.

Announcing this at a function here on Monday, Arvind Pandey, inspector general (IG), criminal investigation department (CID) (weaker section) said, "The increase in the number of MMS scandals defaming girls can directly be attributed to the popularity of high-end mobile phones that support multimedia messaging. So, it is extremely important that girls remain extra vigilant."

The function was held to mark the foundation day of the counselling centre of Magadh Mahila College. Principal of the college Dolly Sinha was also present at the programme, which was handled by head of the department of political science Shashi Sharma.

Lauding the student-counselling centre for completing one year, Sinha said, "Our students are making their mark in various fields and have increased the reputation of the institution. They will do good wherever they go."

Several cultural programmes were also organised to mark the occasion. Around 200 students, along with the teachers of the college, attended the function.
