Harayana Govt Launches “Operation Durga”; 72 Held on Day 1

The Harayana Government, today, has launched ‘Operation Durga’, under which around 72 individuals were nabbed by the police teams, on the very first day, from across the State.

An official spokesman said, around 24 teams, were formed by the Chief Minister’s Flying Squad. The police nabbed these people from all the districts, for allegedly involving in crimes against women.

Besides other police officers from every district, the team comprised woman personnel, including nine Sub-inspectors of Police, 14 Assistant Sub-inspectors, six Head Constables and 13 constables.

Several public places such as schools, colleges, bus stands and railway stations, were visited by the teams, and nabbed persons, who are involved in crime against women, including eve teasing, said the spokesperson.

Further, the Haryana government has set up women police stations in all districts to ensure safety of women and provide them with a safe place for registering complaints. This initiative has been taken, as it was observed that most of the women hesitated in reporting incidents involving such anti-social elements, he added.

Hence, “the campaign Operation Durga was undertaken after identifying places where such anti-social elements were indulging in eve teasing, vulgar comments, stalking and other similar activities,” he added.

Earlier, anti-Romeo squads were set up in Uttar Pradesh to make public spaces safer for women.
