Meghalaya officials leave for Home Ministry meeting
Shillong: The Union Home Ministry has summoned Meghalaya Chief Secretary WMS Pariat and Director General of Police (DGP) Kulbir Krishan besides other top officials from other states in the north east seeking their report on issues pertaining to crime against women in the state, officials said here Thursday.
Both the top officials left for the national capital today to attend the meeting scheduled for January 4 which will review the legal and statutory framework, procedural issues, implementation, disposal of cases and weakness in the laws dealing with different types of offences against women.
At the meeting, officials said, the Chief Secretaries and the DGPs would have to furnish their state’s respective status and statistics on violence against women.
The meeting was convened at the backdrop of the sensational rape and murder of the 23-year old para-medical student in New Delhi and the subsequent outburst of people condemning inadequate laws to deal with the perpetrator(s) of such heinous crimes.
