Daman Dal" will move around the city in plain clothes, keeping
a watch on men misbehaving with women, District Magistrate
Hari Om and DIG Rajesh Rai said in a joint press conference
here on Wednesday.

The drive is being undertaken to not only turn the
heat on eve-teasers, but also identify places where such acts
are frequently reported.

constable, will keep a special vigil on girls` schools,
colleges, public places and market areas.

A list of those who have been held earlier in the
