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 reported.

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.
