Bengaluru: Ms. Isha Pant IPS, Deputy Commissioner of Police, South East Division said in order to make public places safe for women, South East division is starting a social project along with the NGO Durga. We are identifying around 8 places in my division where women are generally not present.
After fixing the infrastructural issues, we will have women from different age groups and professions come and spend a couple of hours there. Seeing more women in such places will encourage other women to visit these places too. The idea is to make women feel safe & comfortable in public places. DC said that we welcome suggestions from the public to identify such places. Reclaiming public spaces is an important aspect of making cities safer for our women.
