No jobs, passports for eve-teasers in Madhya Pradesh
Bhopal: At a time when the union government is mulling ways to make cities safer for women, the Madhya Pradesh government on Monday announced some very strong steps to deter eve-teasers and others who commit crimes against women.
The new steps by Shivraj Singh Chauhan-led government include creation of a data base of all those accused of crime against women like eve-teasing or sending abusive SMSes. The government proposes to deny government jobs to such persons besides cancelling their passports and driving licences.
Importantly, a toll-free telephone number for registering complaints about eve-teasing and misbehaviour will begin functioning from January 01, 2013.
The government will also work towards starting fast-track court to ensure speedy justice in sexual exploitation cases.
