Gurgaon: In a bid to make the security forces
more "courteous", local police has been instructed to make
sure that complaints made by women should only be received by
women officers.
Launching the campaign `Childline se dosti`, an event
organised by two NGOs, Gurgaon Police Commissioner Surjeet
Singh Deswal instructed his subordinates to show due courtesy
while dealing with women and senior citizens.

Referring to the growing "menace of child abuse", Deswal
said his forces follow a `zero tolerance` approach to ensure
no child abuser goes unpunished and every incident is

The affected children, their parents or their schools
should report cases of child abuse instead of suppressing
them, Deswal said.
The Commissioner added that out of the 55 children
reported missing so far in Gurgaon district this year, police
have traced 34 children and handed them over to their parents.
