|NCW recommends steps for women security|
GUWAHATI, July 18 – The National Commission for Women (NCW) in its recommendations in connection with the July 9 incident said that the State government should grant a financial compensation to the victim. It has also called for steps to rehabilitate the victim with a government job in accordance with the State policy or otherwise.
It suggested that to curb all such incidents, police patrolling, including women police in the patrol teams, should be done and special police pickets along with women police, should be set up at all the 128 pubs up to 10-30 pm for the security and safety of the women.
Moreover, it said, close circuit TV cameras should be installed outside all the pubs and immediate arrangements should be made to set up 24-hour women helpline and women cell in every police station of the State.
Proper shelter should be given to the victims of such types of crimes, whose families are not ready to protect them, said the NCW in one of its recommendations.
Police stations of the State should be instructed to take such types of calls immediately, without going into the territorial jurisdiction and inform the police station concerned so that the victim gets immediate help and such types of incidents could be avoided.
It further said that action should be taken against those who were protecting and hiding the culprits of the July 9 incident.
The Commission also suggested steps to take up the case through a fast tract court, to redress the grievances of the victim speedily and in a time-bound manner and to bring all the culprits in this case to book and to punish them as per the legal proviso, among others.
