New Delhi: A high-level committee including the likes of Lt Governor, Delhi Commission for Women chairperson and Delhi Police Commissioner among others will be constituted to review the existing women safety measures in the city.
The decision was today taken during a meeting between Lt Governor Najeeb Jung and DCW chief Swati Maliwal in which the latter raised the issue of poor coordination among the Centre, the Delhi government and police leading to a lack of coordinated response towards women safety.
"A committee will be constituted that will look into the issues related to the safety of women in Delhi. It will include Lt Governor, Delhi Police Commissioner, Home Secretary of Delhi government, WCD Secretary and me.
"The committee will review the existing women safety measures to check crimes against women in the national capital," Maliwal said.
The forum meeting will take place twice a month. Meetings have been called on November 3 and 4 to work out the details, she said.
During the meeting with the LG, Maliwal discussed about the FIRs and charge sheets filed in such cases and the complaints that have come in through the Delhi Police's Himmat mobile app for women safety.
The DCW chief yesterday met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and discussed several issues related to women safety including that of fixing accountability of police in wake of increasing crimes against women and minors.
