Committee to check crime against women in Himachal
Shimla: In the wake of the Delhi gang-rape, Himachal Pradesh Tuesday announced it is constituting a special committee to check crimes against women.
"A special committee headed by a DIG-level officer will be in place within a week`s time to check crime against women," Director General of Police (DGP) B. Kamal Kumar told reporters here.
B Kamal Kumar assumed the charge of the top post Tuesday.
The committee would review all cases related to crimes against women at least once in two months, said the officer, who was earlier heading the home guards and fire services.
Sources said Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Satwant Atwal would head the special committee.
B Kamal Kumar, who replaced ID Bhandari as the state police chief, said following the Delhi gang-rape case, there was a need for regular monitoring of crimes against women.
