Guwahati News Desk: A new initiative called the “Pink Protection” project was launched by Kerala Police, for the protection of women in public, private and digital spaces.
The project’s launch took place on Monday and the inaugural function of the promising project, was conducted at the Kerala Police headquarters.
Meanwhile, the Director General of Police (DGP) Anil Kant and other senior police officers of Kerala Police were also present in the function.
For this particular project, 10 cars, 40 two-wheelers (including Bullet bikes) and 20 bicycles, were allotted, which were flagged off by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
The “Pink Protection” project aims to prevent dowry-related issues, cyber-bullying and humiliation in public places. The project has 10 components, one of which is activating the existing “Pink Police Patrol” system. The system has been named as “Pink Janamaithri Beat”, under which the police officials will be conducting regular house visits to collect information on domestic violence, from the panchayat members, neighbours and other locals. The collected information will be then handed over to the Station House Officers for further action.
In the newly built, Pink Beat system, specially trained women police officers have been deployed, who will be present at the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC), in private buses and in front of schools, colleges and other public places including bus stops, for providing protection to the unsafe women folk.
Infact, several Pink control rooms have been set up in all the 14 districts to coordinate the activities.
A “Pink Shadow Patrol” team will also be deployed, in order to detect the presence of anti-socials in crowded areas and to take action against them. In addition to this, a bullet patrol team of woman police officers called “Pink Romeo” was also launched as part of the project.
