Riding pillion on a two-wheeler with her ‘dupatta’ (shawl) covering her face and slanting her helmet, Puducherry Lt Governor Kiran Bedi travelled incognito to assess safety of women in the Union Territory after dusk.
In a WhatsApp message to media persons after a “night round” of the city on Friday, Bedi said, “Felt that Puducherry is safe for women even at night”.
