Website launched for women in distress

New Delhi, Feb 21: For women in distress, Delhi Police is now just a click away. In a bid to make police more approachable, the Special Police Unit Women and Children (SPUWC) today launched its official website here.

Launching the website, National Commission of Women (NCW) Chairperson Mamta Sharma said this initiative should be replicated in all the states across country. "There are many laws and acts in our country but lack of implementation is the reason for problems faced by women", Sharma said. "This pattern is a step toward implementing policies.

This pattern followed by Delhi Police to help women should be replicated by all the states so that a women at Panchayat and block level can also benefit from it", Sharma said. Emphasising the need of communicating in local languages with the women and children, she said that a website should also be made available in Hindi.

"This website should be translated in Hindi, that ways more people will be able to utilise it", Sharma said. The website will help women in getting all the information about redressal and process of complaint filing at SPUWC, said Suman Nalwa, Additional DCP SPUWC.

"We are available on Facebook and Twitter also, you can contact us through any medium", Nalwa said. A booklet titled "Your Right at SPUWC" was also released by Tripurari Saran Director General Doordarshan. U K Choudhary, Additional CP SPUWC, Arvind Deep Jt CP SPUWC were also present at the event held at SPUWC office in Nanakpura.
